Is a "meet and confer" required prior to filing a motion to quash subpeona pursuant to 1987.1?

Asked about 2 years ago - Los Angeles, CA

My former employer was served with subpoena pursuant to CCP 1985.6.

CCP 1987.1 doesn't say that "meet and confer" required, but I want to make sure.

    Answered . I do not believe there is a mandatory meet and confer requirement with a motion to quash a non-party witness. However, you should attempt a meet and confer letter if you have time. Then, your or your employer should move forward with the quash the subpoena with the meet and confer attached as an exhibit to the motion.
