A new eSubpoena service is enabling people to submit subpoenaed items online to the NSW Supreme Court.
NSW Subpoena Response is a new online service to enable subpoena respondents (producers) for Civil cases to submit subpoenaed items (text, image, audio, video or other data) electronically. This removes the need for hard copies to be sent by post, courier, or hand-delivered over the counter at the Registry.
The free, secure and efficient online service can be found at https://subpoenaresponse.justice.nsw.gov.au and is available to anyone who needs to return subpoenaed items to the Registry, as long as the subpoena received was issue via the Online Registry, and has a court item ID.
Accessing subpoenaed items
Legal practitioners can access subpoenaed items from the Subpoenaed items list tab within the Online Registry Website when:
· Subpoenaed documents have been uploaded through NSW Subpoena Response [insert above link]
· Access orders have been granted – 1st access Plaintiff (7days), 1st access Defendant (7 days) and General access
· For other access orders, request access from the Registry to download and view subpoenaed items.
This means the majority of subpoenaed items can be accessed anywhere, anytime without the need for parties to attend the Registry to photocopy subpoenaed items, as well as saving time and money.
To use the Online Registry Website, register with your Practicing Certificate Number and another identification source: https://onlineregistry.lawlink.nsw.gov.au/content/register-legal-professional
