The Worldwide Web Of Judgment Enforcement

Citing the importance of post judgment discovery to aid in the process of judgment enforcement, the Appellate Division, First Department  has determined that a  subpoena served on the New York branch of an international bank, seeking information about accounts and records from branches outside of New York, is enforceable.  B & M Kingstone, LLC v. Mega International Commercial Bank Co, 131 A.D.3d 259 (1st Dept. 2015).
Although service of the subpoena on the New York branch does not render the New York bank account subject to attachment, the subpoena does require the production of all information about the accounts and records located outside of New York and the United States.
