SUBPOENA DEFINED

A "subpoena" (suh-pee-nah) is a legal document compelling a person to produce documents or give testimony under oath in a deposition or at trial. Refusal to comply is punishable as a contempt of court with civil or criminal penalties.

A subpoena that requires a person to bring documents or papers is called a "subpoena duces tecum" (suh-pee-nah dü-ses tee-k?m).
