Hi. In 2016 I...

Hi. In 2016 I received a subpoena for a warrant in debt from a company who did some water damage work in my home in 2014. However, after the subpoena was issue I recived a call and then a formal written letter from the plantiff attorney stating he was unable to be in court that day and to call his office to reschedule ; which I did and left a voice message. I also responded via email to him and hadn't heard from him or the plaintiff themselves again until yesterday. Yesterday I received a Subpeona duces tecum taped to my front door for this same case.

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?

So I called the General District Court and found out the attorney for the plaintiff did show on the date he said he could not attend and it was ruled in their favor and a judgement in debt was issued on me. How or which form do I use to file a motion to quash this deuces tecum? I am in Stafford, Virginia

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Not certain I follow? Was what filed or reported?

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I am also going to file a motion to rehear which I would like to file jointly with the quash. ok, sounds good

Hi Ely, thank you for extending the call to me however, I would like to keep the communication in written format so I have it to refer back to.

Thank you.

How or which form do I use to file a motion to quash this deuces tecum?

Not all motions have pre-made forms. Luckily, I have a good example of this motion. See HERE. This is what such a motion looks like. Reasons for the court sustaining the motion (agreeing to it) may be: inadequate time to comply, excessive travel requirement, requests information which is privileged or protected, undue burden, undue expense, and so on.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
