Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
It is a civil trial. I am being threatened with a subpoena but have not been served as yet.
Could I ask to speak only to the Judge about my sponsees behavior rather than incriminating her in open court? And could I let the defendant know that should I be crossexamined his behavior would also be made known?
My sponsee filed a PPO on another member of AA for stalking and harrassment. The member is wanting me to state that my sponsee is a "pathological liar"..I do know her to have a history of being very untruthful when I worked with her but I have not spoken with her for a year and a half. I cannot be considered an expert witness but I can, if forced, tell what I knew about her slight association with facts. The member(defendant) was recently cited and the police were involved. He says he was just picking up his kids. She says he was following her and she wants him in jail. I am not inclined to help either one, at this point. I just want to avoid it. Also, I have health issues which may prevent a court appearance and can I demand a deposition?
