When a defendant lives out of the state where the lawsuit was filed can he still be deposed in the state where the suit was filed or in his hom state?

If you have appeared in that lawsuit by an attorney then you must appear for a deposition. As an example if you live in New Jersey and you had an accident in New York and a lawsuit was filed in New York and your lawyer has appeared for you in New York then you must appear for a deposition. If you have not appeared in the lawsuit then you do not have to appear for a deposition in the other state. For more information contact us at http://www.eglaw.com
