What is required to be on a civil subpoena duces tecum or a criminal subpena duces tecum in the way of court approvals? Is a copy of the subpoena/subpena sufficient? Does the court seal need to be on it? Can the attorney representing one of the parties involved sign it? Thanks for your help.

Karen -

Copies of subpoenas are fine, civil subpoenas can be issued by the attorney (no court seal needed) but I am not sure about criminal subpoenas. We check to make sure CCP section 1985.3 has been met and give notice to the customer ourselves.
My opinions are not legal advice and are worth what you paid for them.
