Subpoenas, Summonses, and Information Requests
On occasion, the College may receive legal documentation such as a summons, complaint, or subpoena. Such documents (often referred to as “process”) may require the College to produce information or records, or may place the College on notice that a lawsuit has been initiated. These documents may be received by hand delivery (process server) or mail. The Office of the General Counsel must be notified immediately of any summonses, complaints, subpoenas, court papers of any kind, agency notices and inquiries, and/or communications from outside law firms.
Subpoenas, Summonses, and Process Servers
The following individuals are authorized to receive service of process:
- Any attorney within the Office of the General Counsel (Woodland Park)
- Campus Operating Officers
If you are approached by a process server, explain that you are not authorized to accept service and direct him or her to one of the individuals above.
If you receive a summons or subpoena by mail, email, or facsimile, immediately notify the Office of the General Counsel. Delays can result in penalties or fines. Please ensure that you provide the date of receipt, time, and method of service (e.g. by certified mail). If the subpoena is mailed, be sure to keep the envelope and attach a note stating who received it and on what date. If the subpoena is faxed, be sure to keep the cover letter and attach a note stating who received it and on what date.
Communications from Outside Law Firms
If you receive a demand letter, request for information or records, or any other communication from a law firm, immediately contact the Office of the General Counsel.
Agency Notices and Inquiries
If you receive a notice, inquiry, or request for information by email, letter, or phone from a federal or state agency, immediately contact the Office of the General Counsel and forward the documentation.
