On January 27, 2015, attorney Lori Schmidt won a victory for client Keystone Steel & Wire Company (“Keystone”) in Methodist Health Services Corporation v. OSF Healthcare System d/b/a Saint Francis Medical Center.  After a battle lasting over 16 months, the United States District Court for the Central District of Illinois sided with Keystone and awarded Keystone its substantial costs and attorney’s fees related to its compliance with a non-party subpoena served on it by OSF Healthcare System.  The Court found that OSF Healthcare System failed to comply with Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 45 which requires a party issuing a subpoena duces tecum on a non-party to make subpoena compliance as least burdensome as possible.
