Sue just means "ask". When you are Sued in court it just means that the plaintif is asking the court to award them with money, forcing the defendant to make payment. You can still be sued when you go out of the country, but does it really make any difference. How will they collect if the country to which you have moved does not ackinowledge U.S. law in this particular matter and will not enforce the actions of the court? On the other hand, if you return to the country after the suit has been awarded, you may be forced to pay.
