State v. Stimson, 246 N.C. App. 708 (Apr. 5, 2016)

In this drug trafficking case, the trial court did not err in quashing a subpoena the defendant issued to a North Carolina Department of Revenue employee to testify at trial and produce “[a]ll documents related to the Unauthorized Substance Tax action against [defendant].” In part because the relevant statute in effect at the time provided that information obtained by the Department cannot be used in evidence in a criminal prosecution, the trial court did not abuse its discretion in quashing the subpoena.
