Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Thank you for your response. Would you have/provide any legal references (statute, cases) in support of subpoena special master for deposition in case where special master is in status of special master? It's my understanding that special master appointed by court has a "special" status and in case of subpoena and motion to quash it, courts would grant motion to quash.
Yes (I am not sure, actually). Special Master was doing research. But Special Master has already submitted her Report to the judge and discharge from her duties. I need her to provide evidence which she used to prepare her report, ask about procedures of experiment she witnessed, the names of alleged witnesses she talked to. None of this information is reflected in her Report. It's even difficult to properly object.
I do appreciate your answers. I am pro se and need to respond/object to special master report in about 2 weeks. The report is so unfair, incompetent and misrepresents even simple facts (in re: my cooperation with special master; contentions of parties etc.),that I think the situation is extreme. I need a lawyer to take a look of it. May/can you do that? (it's under 40 pages).
