If I don't go can they get a warrant based on a first class mail letter service only?
seems really odd to me.
Also, would the warrant be for contempt of court?
I have a follow up question to this one.
The paperwork with the subpoena gives me a whole bunch of ways I can object to the subpoena.
May I object using the first allowable objection? And then if the judge overrules me may I object using the 2nd? or do I have to provide all objections at once? I basically want to keep objecting using every rule on the paper one at a time and force them to get the judge to overrule me every time if he chooses to. Granted, I realize this might antagonize the prosecutor, but I really don't want to show up at this hearing.
so if I only file one objection I lose my rights to claim the others?
In these types of cases do judges often follow the law or do they often decide to side with the prosecutor?
