What is a Notice of Deposition?
A notice of deposition is a notice propounded pursuant to requirements set out in statutes, statewide civil rules and local rules, of a party’s deposition of a representative of an opposing party or a third party. Most jurisdictions require reasonable written notice to every other party, and some require a specific number of days’ notice. In most cases, the notice must state the time and place of the deposition and, if known, the deponent’s name and address. If the name is unknown, the notice must provide a general description sufficient to identify the person or the particular class or group to which the person belongs.
