A Summons

So... The other night, an officer came to the door & served Trevor with summons to appear in court next week.

Apparently, the guy who ran over Trevor's bike is being sued by our City. I guess they need Trevor as a witness.

As no one else has contacted Trevor about this, I think it would probably be a good idea for him to find out who the prosecuting attorney is and contact them for information.

In the meantime, I've warned Trevor that real life court is nothing like TV court. Also, if he's even called to testify, answer JUST the question - no long stories. They may ask him to describe the events from his point of view about the accident he was involved in, but again, keep it short & to the point.

Anyone else have any advice?

Sounds like you've got it....I've had to testify a number of times. The atorney that requested him should have a contact number on the summons. YOU should call him, explain a little bit about Trevor, and ask if a deposition would suffice. That way you can schedule it at your convenience, it's a more comfortable setting, they can get to know Trevor a bit. If there is some really important piece that Trevor can provide it will become evident at the deposition so at trial it will be narrowed down to one or two yes/no questions.
