Statute Title or Chapter Headings Are Unofficial Regarding Law Interpretation

The title does not make the law. (DaFonte v. Up-Right, Inc. (1992) 2 Cal. 4th 593, 602 [7 Cal. Rptr. 2d 238, 828 P.2d 140] ["Title or chapter headings are unofficial and do not alter the explicit scope, meaning, or intent of a statute."]; See also Garat v. City of Riverside (1991) 2 Cal. App. 4th 259, 302 [3 Cal. Rptr. 2d 504] ["The mere use of different names for certain categories . . . does not prove that the uses are inconsistent or mutually exclusive; 'What's in a name? That which we call a rose/ by any other name would smell as sweet.' (Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet, act II, scene 2, line 43.)"].) And despite the title, Code of Civil Procedure section 2025 does contain provisions pertaining to depositions for production of business records and things under section 2020, subdivision (d). (See Code Civ. Proc., 2025, subd. (c) [copy of deposition subpoena may serve as notice of "records only" deposition subpoena], and subd. (d) [exempting "records only" deposition subpoenas from qualification requirements for deposition officers].) Unlike subdivision (m)(1), other provisions in section 2025 specifically refer to "oral depositions," supporting the inference that the more generic term "deposition" has a wider reach. (E.g., Code Civ. Proc., 2025, subd. (f).)
