2015 ORS 419B.896¹
Subpoena for production of books, papers, documents and other tangible things

A subpoena may command the person to whom it is directed to produce and permit inspection and copying, at the time and place specified in the subpoena, of designated books, papers, documents or other tangible things in the possession, custody or control of the person. A command to produce books, papers, documents or other tangible things and permit inspection of them may be joined with a command to appear at trial or hearing or, if the books, papers, documents or other tangible things are to be produced before trial, the command may be issued separately. A person commanded to produce and permit inspection and copying of designated books, papers, documents or other tangible things but not commanded to also appear for deposition under ORS 419B.884 (Depositions), hearing or trial may, within 14 days after service of the subpoena or before the time specified for compliance if such time is less than 14 days after service, serve upon the party or attorney designated in the subpoena written objection to inspection or copying of any or all of the designated materials. If objection is made, the party serving the subpoena may not inspect and copy the materials except pursuant to an order of the court in whose name the subpoena was issued. If objection has been made, the party serving the subpoena, upon notice to the person commanded to produce, may move for an order to compel production. When a subpoena commands production of books, papers, documents or other tangible things, the court, upon motion made promptly and in any event at or before the time specified in the subpoena for compliance with the subpoena, may:

(1) Quash or modify the subpoena if it is unreasonable and oppressive; or

(2) Condition denial of the motion upon the advancement by the person in whose behalf the subpoena is issued of the reasonable cost of producing the books, papers, documents or other tangible things. [2001 c.622 §26; 2003 c.14 §228]
