(a) When attendance at an examination in accordance with Fed. R. Bankr. P. 2004, or when the production of documents is required in connection with such an examination, the subpoena may be served on a party who has appeared in the bankruptcy case through any method of service appropriate for service of a summons under Fed. R. Bankr. P. 7004. When a party is represented by an attorney, service on the attorney will constitute service on the party.

(b) When a party seeks documents, electronically stored information or tangible things from the debtor or others in a case under the Bankruptcy Code separately from a deposition or an examination, the attorney for the party may issue and serve a subpoena duces tecum using Official Form 2570 as long as the date set for production is more than 14 days from the date of service of the subpoena; otherwise, the attorney for the party must proceed under LR 2004(d) and obtain a court order in advance. The attorney for the party serving the subpoena duces tecum must file a notice of the subpoena duces tecum on the docket of the case concurrently with the issuance and service of the subpoena. Nothing in this local rule precludes a recipient of a subpoena from exercising rights under Federal Rule 45(d)(2) and (3).
