A Board of Arbitration (1895) has authority to make and publish investigations of all facts relating to strikes and lock-outs, to issue subpoenas for the attendance and testifying of witnesses, and "to adjust strikes or lock-outs by mediation or conciliation, without a formal submission to arbitration."
A state board of arbitration was created in 1896, but its usefulness was impaired by an opinion of the state attorneygeneral (in 1901) that it could not enforce subpoenas, compel testimony or enforce decisions.
March the Respondents will, by list, notify the appellant of all or any witnesses against whom subpoenas will be issued.
Yahoo alone expects to receive 600 civil subpoenas this year -- a 50 percent jump from 2002.
If we can use these subpoenas to catch crooked doctors, the Congress should allow law enforcement officials to use them in catching terrorists.
