Default Are depositions allowed in small claims court in NYC?

Can I legally require a witness to sit for a deposition in a small claims court in New York City? Before the date of the court case?

I wish to inform you that you need the court's permission for discovery in small claims court. Second, if you ask for discovery, it should be on motion papers, identifying the type of discovery you want (document production, deposition, interrogatories, subpoena to non-party, etc.) and explaining why it's necessary for you to prove your case. You may contact the office of the Clerk or an attorney to seek guidance in the matter.

I doubt if you will be granted permission for a deposition. Small claims court is designed to be informal and speedy.

Besides, if you can't present evidence to support your case without taking a deposition of your opponent, you probably have no case.

Care to explain why you want a deposition and what you hope to gain from it.
