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.

Asked in Credit and Debit Cards, Credit
If you do not pay your credit card balance and leave the country can they sue you in the country you moved to?
No they can't. Civil action such as lawsuits for debts are only possible in the country in which the debt was incurred. However, if the debts with a lending institutions/bank which also do business within the country they now live, they will have a very difficult time establishing a new lince of credit. Also, the debtor can still be sued in the country in which the debt was made and the creditor can "hold" the judgment award for the length of time allowed under the law, or execute it against property that may still belong to the absentee debtor.
