What is a subpoena?

A subpoena is "a writ commanding a person to appear under penalty" ( from Latin)

It is used to compel the testimony of witnesses in a trial or other adversarial proceeding. Subpoenas are issued by the clerk of the courts in the name of the judge presiding over the case in which the witness is to testify. ( Additionally, court rules often permit lawyers to issue subpoenas themselves in their capacity as officers of the courts.) Typically subpoenas are issued "in blank" and it is the responsibility of the lawyer representing the plaintiff or defendant on whose behalf the testimony is to be given to serve the subpoena on the witness.
