How to Domesticate an Out-of-State Subpoena in Minnesota

Understanding How to Domesticate an Out-of-State Subpoena in Minnesota:

Minnesota is a state that adheres to Uniform Interstate Deposition and Discovery Act (UIDDA), which was passed into law on July 1, 2015. The act allows people living out of Minnesota to file and serve an international subpoena.

For litigants living outside Minnesota and wishing to serve a subpoena to residents of Minnesota, they must adhere to UIDDA and Minnesota's laws. According to the laws of Minnesota, a subpoena must contain the following information:

  • Name of the out-of-state issuing court

  • Title of the action, location, and name of the international court where there is a pending legal proceeding

  • Court file number

  • Command the addressed person or persons to either attend a trial to give their testimony or produce documents, books, or anything in their possession.

  • Contain a notice and should note any reimbursement of expenses according to Rule 45.03
