Utah Admin. Code R25-3-8 - Informal Adjudicative Proceedings - Subpoenas

(1) Subpoena power. Pursuant to Subsection 63G-4-203(1)(e), the Appeal Authority may issue subpoenas to witnesses and may obtain documents or other evidence in conjunction with any inquiry, investigation, hearing, or other proceedings.
(a) The Appellant has the right to require the production of books, papers, records, documents, and other items pertinent to the facts at issue that are within the control of the governmental entity against which the Appeal is lodged, and which are not held to be protected or privileged by law. Affidavits and ex parte statements offered during a hearing may be received and considered by the Appeal Authority.
(b) A person receiving a subpoena issued by the Appeal Authority will find the title of the proceeding posted thereon, and the person to whom it is directed shall be compelled to attend and give testimony. A subpoena ducestecum may be used to produce designated books, or other items at a specified time and place when these items are under an agency's or a person's control.
(c) A request by counsel or a Party's representative to issue a subpoena must be reasonable and timely. At least 5 full working days' notice prior to a scheduled hearing must be given to the Appeal Authority, not counting preparation and delivery time. The requesting Party shall simultaneously notify the other Parties of the request.
(d) The original of each subpoena is to be presented to the person named therein, and, if applicable, a copy shall be issued to the counsel or representative of each Party.
(2) Service of subpoenas. Service of subpoenas shall be made by the requesting Party delivering the subpoena to the person named, unless the Appeal Authority is requested to deposit the subpoena properly addressed and postage prepaid, with the U.S. Postal Service, or to send it by State Mail and Distribution Services, or to send it by e-mail, or in any combination.
(3) Proof of service. If service has not been acknowledged by the witness, the server may make an affidavit of service. Failure to make proof of service does not affect the validity of the service.
