BEFORE sending out the subpoenas for an arbitration hearing w/ a County department, the attorney emails over the witness list? Correct? So, it would be regular protocol for the attorney to send the department the witness list before they get the subpoenas? Confirming this is true... (I am NOT calling this activity unlawful or unethical)

A: There is nothing unlawful, unethical or even out of the ordinary to exchange witness lists before actually subpoenaing the witnesses. Good luck to you.
