Dear Federal Circuit Court of Australia,
This enquiry is in regard to a subpoena that was filed by the Melbourne Court Registry and dated the 23rd of February 2012 under case number MLG 3/2012.
The return date on the subpoena filed on the 23rd of February 2012 had a return date for documents to be produced by 4pm on the 8th March 2012.
The hearing date for the subpoena that was filed on the 23rd of February 2012 was the next day which was the 24th of February 2012.
The registry mailed the filed subpoena dated the 23rd Feb on the 23rd of Feb via express post which arrived to me on the 24th of Feb 2012.
I need the Federal Circuit Court to disclose if the subpoena filed on the 23rd of February was considered a valid subpoena under the court rules.
If the subpoena filed on the 23rd of February was a valid subpoena then I need the Federal Circuit Court to establish why the hearing on the 24th of February was not altered to allow for the return date on the subpoena which was the 8th March 2012.
For Official Use Only
