Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Our justice system is many things, it isn't fast. I don't know if this will help you any, but this is actually a very common occurrence. Part of the problem is that there are just too many cases set on a daily basis. There may be a dozen or more cases all set for the same time. While the attorneys need to be prepared to go forward on each of those cases, they just can't all go forward that day and those cases then get continued to another day. And, of course, the witnesses then need to return on another day.

Yes, a subpoena remains in effect until the issuing attorney states otherwise. Having said that, the attorney certainly should provide the witness with all court dates.
