METROPOLITAN LIFE INSURANCE
IVONNE I. BETANCOURT and
RAP AEL 0. MOLINA, JR.,
This matter comes before the court on the pro se Defendant Ivonne I. Betancourt's
("Defendant") motion to subpoena Walgreens to produce documents. [DE-28]. The court itself does
not subpoena documents for a party; however, Rule 45 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
provides the mechanism by which a party may obtain a subpoena to command the production or
inspection of documents:
The clerk must issue a subpoena, signed but otherwise in blank, to a party
who requests it. That party must complete it before service. An attorney also may
issue and sign a subpoena ifthe attorney is authorized to practice in the issuing court.
Fed. R. Civ. P. 45(a)(3). Accordingly, the court interprets Defendant's motion as a request for the
Clerk of Court to issue a subpoena, and the Clerk of Court is DIRECTED, in conformity with Rule
45, to issue a signed but otherwise blank subpoena to Defendant.
SO ORDERED, the~ day of June 2014.
United States Magistrate Judge
