[Name of person] SUBPOENA SCHEDULE

I. Definitions

1. "Document" means every writing or record of whatever type and description in your possession, custody, or control on which information is recorded in any way whatsoever, including all handwritten, typed, printed, recorded, transcribed, taped, filmed, graphic- or sound-reproduction material, magnetic cards or cartridges, optical storage devices, and computer records.

2. "Subpoena period" means January 1, ____, through the date of service of this subpoena.

3. "Relate to" means to make a statement about, refer to, discuss, describe, reflect, identify, deal with, consist of, or in any way pertain, in whole or in part, to the subject.

4. "Or" as well as "and" shall be construed interchangeably in a manner that gives this subpoena schedule the broadest reading.

II. General Instructions

1. You are required to produce the originals of all documents and other items which are responsive, in whole or in part, to any description set forth in this "Subpoena Schedule" along with all copies of any such document which differ from the original by virtue of any addition, deletion, alteration, notation, or inscription on any part of the document, including its back.

2. Unless otherwise indicated, "documents" includes all documents prepared, sent, dated, received, in effect, or which otherwise came into existence at any time during the subpoena period.

3. By separation into separate file folders or other enclosures, you are to identify the paragraph and subparagraph of Section III "Documents to be Produced" to which each document produced pursuant to this subpoena is responsive. You should sign and mark each folder or other enclosure with your name, the date of the subpoena, and the paragraph of the subpoena attachment to which the documents are responsive.

4. No document called for by this subpoena shall be destroyed, modified, redacted, removed, or otherwise made inaccessible to the Grand Jury, except insofar as documents are withheld under claim privilege in compliance with the instructions below.

5. Each page of each document should be identified in the lower right-hand corner with your initials followed by a consecutive number, preferably marked in red or dark blue so that copies can be distinguished from original numbered documents.

6. The singular form of a word shall be construed to include within its meaning the plural form of the word, and vice versa, and the use of any tense of any verb shall be considered to also include all other tenses, in a manner that gives this subpoena schedule the broadest reading.

(a) the name and title of the author (and, if different, the preparer and signatory);

(b) the name and title of the person to whom the document was addressed;
