The rules of court and perhaps the laws of the state in which the lawsuit is filed govern; howver generally in addition to the witness, any party to the action and his or her lawyer are the ones having a "right" to be present. Normally, any other person, especially other witnesses are excluded but, if the parties agree, they may allow anyone else to attend.
