PROTECTION OF PERSONS SUBJECT TO SUBPOENAS A party or an attorney responsible for the issuance and service of a subpoena shall take reasonable steps to avoid imposing undue burden or expense on a person subject to that subpoena. The court on behalf of which the subpoena was issued shall enforce this duty and impose upon the party or attorney in breach of this duty an appropriate sanction, which may include, but is not limited to, lost earnings and a reasonable attorney's fee. On timely motion, the court by which a subpoena was issued shall quash or modify the subpoena if it (1) fails to allow reasonable time for compliance; (2) requires a person who is not a party or an officer of a party to travel outside the county in which the person resides or is employed or regularly transacts business in person, except as provided below, such a person may in order to attend a hearing or trial be commanded to travel from any place within the county in which the hearing or trial is held, or (3) requires disclosure of privileged or other protected matter and no exception or waiver applies, or (4) subjects a person to undue burden. If a subpoena (1) requires disclosure of a trade secret or other confidential research, development, or commercial information, or (2) requires disclosure of an unretained expert's opinion or information not describing specific events or occurrences in dispute and resulting from the expert's study made not at the request of any party, or (3) requires a person who is not a party or an officer of a party to incur substantial expense to travel, the court may, to protect a person subject to or affected by the subpoena, quash or modify the subpoena or, if the party in whose behalf the subpoena is issued shows a substantial need for the testimony or material that cannot be otherwise met without undue hardship and assures that the person to whom the subpoena is addressed will be reasonably compensated, the court may order appearance or production only upon specified conditions.
