17B:34-8. Subpoenas to witnesses shall be issued in the name of the commissioner by him or by any deputy commissioner or other employee designated by him at the request of any person interested in the proceeding, but no subpoena duces tecum shall be issued except for good cause shown. All subpoenas shall be subject to modification or cancellation on application and upon a showing that the same is oppressive or unreasonable, that the witness or evidence to be produced is not reasonably related to the matter, or on any other proper ground. Any person failing or refusing to comply with the command of a subpoena may be ordered by a judge of the Superior Court, on application made by the commissioner or by the person at whose instance the subpoena was issued, and to be proceeded upon in a summary manner, to comply with the terms of the subpoena or else to be punished by the court for contempt.
