Purdue signature


What if I receive a subpoena?

Purdue University and its employees are subject to the subpoena powers of state and federal courts. Third parties involved in lawsuits often seek to obtain University records that they consider relevant to the issues involved in their claims or lawsuits, even when the University is not a party to the claims or lawsuits. Not all subpoenas are valid in the State of Indiana.

This policy provides a centralized procedure for dealing with subpoenas by third parties. If you receive a subpoena please do not attempt to respond to it yourself. Forward via campus mail to:

Public Records Office

Abby K. Daniels
Legal Services Coordinator
Hovde Hall, Room 217

We will handle it from there and will contact you if you need to respond.
