URCP 45

Advisory Committee Notes

The process to request a protective order is governed by Rule 37(a), Statement of discovery issues.

The form subpoena formerly part of the Appendix of Forms described in Rule 81 has been replaced by forms approved by the Board of District Court Judges found on the court website at http://www.utcourts.gov/resources/forms/subpoena/. The website includes information and forms for domestic subpoenas and subpoenas from other states. Utah has adopted the Uniform Interstate Depositions and Discovery Act, and the act differentiates between the requirements for a subpoena issued by a state that also has adopted the uniform act and the requirements for a subpoena issued by a state that has not.
