A deposition may be served 10 days after the summons:

http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/codes_displaySection.xhtml?lawCode=CCP&sectionNum=2025.270.

Discovery closes 30 days before trial per 2034.210 so any depositions would need to occur before then.

Also please see this guide:

https://saclaw.org/wp-content/uploads/sbs-discovery-depositions.pdf

It must be completed 30 days prior to trial:

10 days after summons? I'm a little confused
Lawyer: legalgems, attorney replied 3 months ago

That is for the starting point for sending out depositions;

the 30 days before trial is the deadline by which the deposition must be completed.
