My office was subpoenaed by some defendant as a third party to provide records we can't legally produce. I file a motion to quash that explains exactly what we need in order to produce the records - an order of the court . Nothing happens in the case for three weeks. I call the JA up, she, with not an ounce of courtesy or warmth, says I need to file it again, along with a proposed order. I'm fine with a party to the case having to do the judge's job for him and write a proposed order. But a third-party? I know nothing about the case. As a state lawyer, I'm paid a salary, a shitty one at that, and already work from 7-6 most days (less SF time of course ). In fact, I only responded as a courtesy. I could've just sat on the case and waited for the defendant to file a motion to make the court order us to produce the records. I'll do that in the future.
