Third-Party Discovery Request
COSTS OF COMPLIANCE WITH THIRD-PARTY DISCOVERY REQUESTS
The costs of compliance with third-party discovery requests made on the ACEN with regard to a governing organization/nursing program can be high and cannot be reasonably anticipated for budgeting purposes. To defray costs, where reimbursement for complying with a subpoena and/or third-party discovery request is not provided by the party serving the subpoena or document request, the ACEN may charge the governing organization/nursing program that is the subject of the subpoena/document request with all associated costs, including but not limited to the costs of production, copying, and delivering the documents as well as attorney’s fees incurred.
