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

Understanding how to Domesticate an Out-of-State Subpoena in Vermont:

To facilitate better discovery and depositions in Vermont from civil actions in foreign states, Vermont has passed the Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act (U.I.D.D.A.) into law. The Act aims to eliminate previous hardships and high costs of serving foreign subpoenas in Vermont.

Process of Issuance of International Subpoena in Vermont includes:

  • An attorney or party should submit the out-of-state subpoena from the foreign court to the Clerk of court in Vermont. The legal documents must be submitted to a county court where the individual or entity resides or conducts business.

  • A Vermont subpoena should accompany the international subpoena. The Clerk of the court must sign these documents.

  • A subpoena must list all legal counsel members and any unrepresented party

  • Filing fee must be paid to the superior court

In Vermont, two types of out-of-state subpoenas can be domesticated or enforced in the state:

  • Foreign Subpoena: A subpoena issued by a court or administrative agency of another state, territory, or tribe can be domesticated in Vermont if it meets the requirements of Vermont law.

  • Discovery Subpoena: A discovery subpoena is issued in connection with a civil action pending in another state that seeks the production of documents, electronically stored information, or tangible things or that seeks permission to enter land or other property for inspection or other purposes related to the pending action.

Types of Out-Of-State Subpoenas for Domestication in Vermont
