A subpoena is a written order to compel an individual to give testimony on a particular subject, often before a court but sometimes in other proceedings (such as a congressional inquiry). Failure to comply with such an order to appear may be punishable as contempt. A subpoena can be more formally referred to as a subpoena ad testificandum, a subpoena to testify.
