What does Subpoena mean?

A subpoena is a court order for a person to appear in court at a specific date and time to testify at a trial.

Individuals who fail to appear when issued a subpoena may be held in contempt of court, and they may be fined or arrested. Subpoenas may be issued by a court clerk who is responsible for notifying all of the witnesses who need to appear at trial.
