Hello, I was currently employed as an DCS Worker in another state that I currently do not reside in. The state I use to reside in are attempting to subpoena me on a case . I am no longer employed with that agency anymore. However, my current employer is trying to make me be readily available to accept the subpoena and I have not been personally served. I have a doctor's note excusing me from work due to work related stress.
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the subpoena was issued in?
Customer: The subpoena is issued in MO but I am residing in TN.
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: I have attempted too. They are saying they can not assist me with this matter. The attorney with the agency is now saying he can not give me legal advice. Since I am no longer with the previous employer they don't have a right to present me in this matter. I was assigned to the case, and the trial
is scheduled in a few days.
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: Now, they are saying I could be held in contempt and I have not been physically served.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Criminal
Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
