Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
IF you have been subpoenaed for a 2004 examination, then you must appear or face being charged with contempt. The only thing you could do to stop from having to appear would be to file a motion to quash the subpoena and claim that there is nothing for the trustee to gain from deposing you under oath. However, if the trustee states that he/she believes you have information relative to the bankruptcy estate, the judge is going to order you to appear.
I understand it's for a 2004 exam....but you should have gotten a subpoena/subpoena duces tecum to appear and testify.....did you not?
