WVC 48 - 27 - 312 PART 3. PROCEDURE.
§48-27-312. Production of documents pursuant to a subpoena duces tecum.
Notwithstanding any provision of law or any procedural rule to the contrary, any record in a proceeding filed pursuant to this article shall be supplied to any person presenting a subpoena duces tecum issued by a state or federal court in any criminal action or action filed pursuant to this article. Any record in a proceeding filed pursuant to this article is not subject to disclosure pursuant to a subpoena if the subpoena was issued in a civil action. In civil proceedings a court, for good cause shown, may enter an order permitting a person who is not otherwise permitted access to a court file to examine and copy records of a proceeding filed pursuant to this article: Provided, That the court shall enter such order as may be necessary to protect any document containing the address or other contact information of a person who filed a petition under this article: Provided, however, That any records obtained pursuant to the provisions of this section shall be used only in the context of the case in which the subpoena was issued and not for any other purpose.
