P. 45(a)(3)(B) (stating that "[a]n attorney . . . may issue and sign a subpoena as an officer of a court for a district where a deposition is to be taken or production is to be made, if the attorney is authorized to practice in the court where the action is pending"); see also id. advisory committee's note ("Any attorney permitted to represent a client in a federal court . . . has the same authority as a clerk to issue a subpoena from any federal court for the district in which the subpoena is served and enforced."), it is hereby ORDERED that:
1. The motion to enforce subpoena (Doc. 1) is DENIED as moot. Plaintiff shall be permitted to serve the subpoena in accordance with Rule 45 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
