Can't subpoenas be issued by grand juries as well?
The current article only states that: "Subpoenas are issued by the clerk of the court in the name of the judge presiding over the case in which the witness is to testify. (Additionally, court rules often permit lawyers to issue subpoenas themselves in their capacity as officers of the court.)"
- Yes, and they can also be issued by administrative agencies for various hearings when authorized by statute. 126.96.36.199 21:15, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
Can one be summoned to appear as a witness in a civil case if resident in a foreign country? Millbanks 07:23, 23 June 2007 (UTC)
With a foreign witness the usual procedure is that the court requiring the evidence issues a "Letter of Request" to the authorities in the country where the intended witness is situate, and those foreign authorities will examine the witness — in the UK this is governed by the Civil Procedure Rules http://www.justice.gov.uk/civil/procrules_fin/contents/parts/part34.htm —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cambridge Paul (talk • contribs) 13:12, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
Can someone who knows the pronunciation jargon add the pronunciation of the word 'subpeona' to the page? When I was little I read it phonetically and thought that was how it was pronounced. "Sub-pee-oh-nah" :) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 00:53, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
- Why would you pronounce it that way, when the spelling gives first the 'o' and then the 'e'? In any case the 'o' is not spoken at all and the 'ub' and 'a' are rather voiceless, like S'pEEna. --Vancouver robin 15:47, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

vs. court order
From recent news, it appears a subpeona is not a court order. That sounds right since the article suggests they are issued by lawyers at their whim rather than directly by judges. On the other hand they are 'in the name of the judge'. They seem to carry different weight. Seems like the article should describe the distinction. -R. S. Shaw (talk) 05:35, 7 January 2008 (UTC)
This is a Law-related article and it is part of one of the Law templates, so could someone add that into the page?
As in 'æsthetic' and 'phœbe' and 'œnophile' and 'encyclopædia', and numerous other words, the word we are defining here properly contains a double letter. (i.e.: œ Œ Ǣ æ) I well remember "Ǣsop's Fables" from my childhood, and how it was pronounced. True, in the USA, this sort of double letter spelling is often reduced to "esthetic" and "encyclopedia", but then so much of what Webster did is uneven and illogical. Would someone like to alter this article to spell the word SUBPŒNA with the double letter? My suggestion. I do not go with the Be Bold thing. There are plenty of Bold People already. I just look at Wikipedia and make suggestions to the Bold People. Thanks, for listening.... In Good Faith! -r 220.127.116.11 (talk) 09:48, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
