Video Training: Responding To Subpoenas

January 1, 2018

A subpoena is a written document that requests the attendance of a person to testify at a deposition, hearing, or trial and/or the production of documents, including business records.  This training answers many important questions about subpoenas, including whether a subpoena is a court order, and what domestic violence agencies should do to be prepared in case a subpoena is ever issued asking for information about a domestic violence survivor.  It also provides a complete step-by-step guide on how to respond if you have been subpoenaed as a third-party witness to a case.
