A party to a lawsuit will request that the deposition occur. The request for the witness to appear is known as a Notice of Deposition. The Notice of Deposition will state the date, time, and location of the deposition. It will also indicate whether the witness needs to bring documents to the deposition.
If the witness is not a party to the lawsuit, then a Subpoena will be required in addition to the Notice of Deposition.
