V. Procedures for issuing and contesting subpoenas

Absent the provisions within the Shield Law itself, the Illinois Code of Civil Procedure governs the issuance of subpoenas in civil cases. See, e.g., 735 ILCS 5/2-1101, 5/10-109 (2002); see also Reporter's Privilege, 735 ILCS 5/8-904. Subpoenas issued in criminal cases are governed by the criminal rules set forth for each judicial district. See e.g., IL R COOK CTY CIR Rule 15.3 (setting for the rule for issuing subpoenas in criminal cases Cook County); IL R 4 CIR Rule 7-4 (setting for the rule for issuing in criminal cases in the Fourth Judicial Circuit); IL R 19 CIR Rule 10.11 (setting forth the rule for issuing in criminal cases in the Nineteenth Judicial Circuit). In addition, Illinois Supreme Court Rules govern compelling appearances of witnesses at trial and the subpoena power in civil cases. See Ill. Sup. Ct. R. 204, 237 (2002).
