UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
STATE OF NEVADA EX REL. BOARD OF
REGENTS OF THE NEVADA SYSTEM OF
HIGHER EDUCATION ON BEHALF OF
UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA, LAS VEGAS, et al. )
Case No. 2:15-cv-01228-RFB-GWF
This matter is before the Court on Plaintiff’s Motion to Compel Clerk to Sign Subpoenas
(ECF No. 178), filed on September 7, 2017.
Plaintiff represents that the Clerk’s Office refused to issue 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 LR 17-1(d)
does not apply. The Court agrees. Plaintiff is appearing pro se and is not proceeding in this case in
forma pauperis. Plaintiff, therefore, does not need to obtain the Court’s approval for the issuance of
subpoenas and he may obtain subpoenas in accordance with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
Nothing in this order is intended to otherwise validate any subpoena. Accordingly,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiff’s Motion to Compel Clerk to Sign Subpoenas
(ECF No. 178) is granted.
DATED this 2nd day of October, 2017.
GEORGE FOLEY, JR.
United States Magistrate Judge
