(1) ALJs, DSHS, and attorneys for the parties may prepare subpoenas. If an attorney does not represent you, you may ask the ALJ to prepare a subpoena on your behalf. The ALJ may schedule a hearing to decide whether to issue a subpoena.
(2) An ALJ may deny a request for a subpoena. For example, an ALJ may deny a request for a subpoena when the ALJ determines that a witness has no actual knowledge regarding the facts or that the documents are not relevant.
