1Dear [FIRSTNAME],I hope everyone had a great weekend. I want to announce that this issue is a milestone issue as ithas been one year since I started this weekly legal newsletter!The topic of the newsletter this week is the use of a notice to appear at trial or hearing and produce documents in California, more commonly known as a notice in lieu of subpoena ducestecum.The notice is given pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure § 1987(b) and (c) and can only be usedon a party to the civil action or proceeding, or someone who is an officer, director, or managingagent of any such party. One of the main advantages of using the notice to appear is that servicemay be made by mail, instead of personal service as is required with a standard subpoena.---------------Reminder:THE AUTHOR NOW SELLS COLLECTIONS OF SAMPLE LEGAL DOCUMENTS AT AHUGE DISCOUNT! VISIT THE WEBSITE BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION.http://www.scribd.com/legaldocspro---------------But the best advantage of all is the fact that even a party who has failed to request certainessential or critical documents during the discovery phase of the litigation process, and theexistence of those documents is known, and the documents can be clearly identified, that partycan prepare and serve the notice on the other party to compel them to appear and produce therequested documents at the trial or hearing.Even a party who has missed the discovery cut-off date for requesting certain documents can stillcompel production of those documents, provided that they can identify the requested documentswith reasonable particularity.If only the attendance of the person as a witness is required, then service may be made personallyat least ten (10) calendar days before the trial or hearing, or fifteen (15) calendar days before thetrial or hearing if service is made by mail. Service should be made on the party, or their attorneyif they have one.If production of documents is required, then service may be made personally at least twenty (20)calendar days before the trial or hearing, or twenty five (25) calendar days before the trial or hearing if service is made by mail. Service should be made on the party, or their attorney if theyhave one. The notice should state the exact materials or things desired, as well as a statement thatthe person has them in their possession, or under their control.The giving of the notice shall have the same effect as service of a subpoena on the witness, and
