No. 77-547.

352 So.2d 107 (1977)

DON MOTT AGENCY, INC., a Florida Corporation, Petitioner, v. Byrd PULLUM, Respondent.

District Court of Appeal of Florida, Second District.

Rehearing Denied December 15, 1977.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Richard A. Strickland of Fowler, White, Gillen, Boggs, Villareal & Banker, St. Petersburg, for petitioner.

Christopher C. Ferguson of the Law Offices of Robert F. Nunez, St. Petersburg, for respondent.


The petition for writ of certiorari filed by petitioner, Don Mott Agency, Inc., is granted, and the order of the trial court granting the motions of respondent, Byrd Pullum, to quash a subpoena duces tecum and for a protective order is reversed.

Respondent Pullum did not show by a timely motion to quash that the subpoena duces tecum requested by petitioner is "unreasonable and oppressive" as required by Fla.R.Civ.P. 1.410(b) nor show by a motion for a protective order that good cause is present to limit or prohibit the discovery sought by petitioner due to "annoyance, embarrassment, oppression, or undue burden or expense" as required by Fla.R.Civ.P. 1.280(c).


BOARDMAN, C.J., and SCHEB and OTT, JJ., concur.
