In the five years since my article Obtaining Out-of-State Evidence for State Court Civil Litigation: Where to Start? was published in the Georgia Bar Journal, several additional states have adopted the Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act. Included in that article was a chart with citations to each state’s statute or rule on getting out-of-state subpoenas, but it’s time to update that chart again.
You can download the updated chart here. In this updated chart, I have also added helpful websites. If you are an attorney and write a blog post on obtaining out-of-state subpoenas for your state, let me know and I’ll add it to my chart.
This is also helpful because if you are obtaining a subpoena in Georgia, you can only use Georgia’s UIDDA if the state where the action is pending has also adopted UIDDA; otherwise, you can still use Georgia’s UFDA procedure.
You can follow the legislative actions for UIDDA at the Uniform Law Commission’s website.
