we are in a dragged out dispute with a neighbour and he has told us he is going to have NCAT subpoena owners’ personal emails. Can NCAT subpoena owners’ emails and force owners to provide them to NCAT as evidence??
Yes, they call it a summons - but it works in the same vein as a subpoena. The person to whom the summons is directed may object to it. Common grounds for objection are: too oppressive, too vague, privileged communication (e.g. between lawyer and client), irrelevant to the dispute in the proceedings.
