A Motion to Quash evidence asks a judge to suppress a piece of evidence because there is a problem with it. If the motion is granted, the evidence can’t be used in court. A Motion to Quash evidence is typically used in a criminal case and often called a “Motion to Suppress Evidence.” Some examples of when a Motion to Quash evidence can be used:

  • The chain of custody was broken;
  • The evidence is confidential or highly prejudicial; or
  • The evidence was tampered with.

The subpoena, however, is related to a parent(s) of a child who had been adjudicated and is in relation to a juvenile court proceeding, should I comply then?
Family Lawyer: RayAnswers, Lawyer replied 2 months ago

You can go either way here provide it or file a motion to quash.The court would then have to decide if you want to contest it here.But legally if you have a subpoena it is issued by a court and you would be able to provide the records on that basis.

It was not a court order but signed by a circuit clerk and did not have required language per the mental health disabilities act
Family Lawyer: RayAnswers, Lawyer replied 2 months ago

So here the safe play is to produce the records to the court for inspection and advise the other side that you did that because of the problems with subpoena.You cannot go wrong that way have court review them and decide whether they can be released.Consider that option. You can hand deliver them to court with a cover letter expressing your concerns about releasing them and asking court to review them and decide the matter and issue orders.
