Hi, I am a self represented litigant and I had the clerk issue a subpoena for the defendant in my case (I already tried to coordinate the schedule without deposition but Attorney did not want to). Do I have to give them notice first by mail then serve them in person? Can someone please help?
Assuming you are not requiring the deponent to bring documents to the deposition, the way to do it is serve the deponent first, and then serve notice to opposing counsel. The notice would be a standard notice of deposition with a copy of the subpoena attached as an exhibit. If you are requiring the deponent to produce documents, the procedure can get a little complicated because you may need to serve a notice to consumer before serving the notice of deposition.
