serve immediate discovery on [Virginia Tech] to obtain the identity of each Doe defendant by serving a subpoena pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 45 that seeks documents that identify each Doe defendant, including the name, current (and permanent) addresses and telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, and Media Access Control addresses for each defendant. Such a subpoena may also seek all documents and electronically-stored information related to the assignment of any IP address which Virginia Tech cannot link to a specific Doe defendant.
*2 For each of the IP addresses listed in Attachment A to this Subpoena, and at the listed dates and times, provide the corresponding name(s), current and permanent addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, and [MAC] addresses. In the event that the IP address is linked to multiple individuals, provide all documents and electronically-stored information relating to the assignment of the IP address at the dates and times provided.
[n]either the State, nor any of its employees to whom subpoenas have been directed to obtain the information sought, that have been found essential to the prosecution of the Plaintiff's case, are parties, nor has any relief in law or equity been sought against them or the State. No judgment will be issued in this action against the State that could have any conceivable effect on the State treasury; the State custodians are only subpoenaed to produce documents for use in the prosecution of this federal civil rights action. The Non-Parties' assertion that they must comply with the subpoenas in their official capacities as custodians of record is irrelevant; no judgment or other relief of any kind is sought against them in this litigation.
