Board Limits Time for Subpoena Challenges

The Disciplinary Board has amended Section 91.3(b) of the Rules of the Disciplinary Board regarding challenges to subpoenas. The new rule requires that all motions challenging subpoenas must be filed within ten (10) days after service of the subpoena. The party serving the subpoena has five (5) days after service of the motion to file an answer. A hearing on the motion is to be held within ten days after the answer, and the report of the Hearing Committee Member or Special Master hearing the challenge is to be filed with the Disciplinary Board within ten days after the hearing. The amendment is published at 36 Pa.B. 1490 (April 1, 2006).
