UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
GEORGE DEMETRIUS KARALIS, M.D.,
THE GUN VAULT, INC. and KELLY D. CARN, )
Case No. 2:12-cv-00694-APG-GWF
This matter is before the Court on Plaintiff’s Emergency Motion for Issuance of Subpoena
(ECF No. 195), filed on September 1, 2017.
Plaintiff represents that the Clerk’s Office refused to issue seven subpoenas at Plaintiff’s
request because Plaintiff did not first obtain the Court’s consent. Plaintiff argues that he is not
required to obtain a court order prior to the issuance of the subpoenas because this is a civil case and
Rule 17 of the Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure does not apply. The Court agrees. Plaintiff, who
is appearing pro se, is not proceeding in this case in forma paupers and, therefore, does not need to
obtain the Court’s approval to obtain subpoenas. Accordingly,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiff’s Emergency Motion for Issuance of Subpoena
(ECF No. 195) is denied without prejudice. Plaintiff should again request the issuance of his seven
subpoenas from the Clerk’s Office and may provide a copy of this Order.
DATED this 5th day of September, 2017.
GEORGE FOLEY, JR.
United States Magistrate Judge
