If I don't go to a civil deposition what can happen to me?
I am a lawyer in CT and practice in this area of the law. A deposition notice/subpoena is equivolent to a court order as lawyers are considered to be officers of the court. if you are subpoenaed to a deposition that is within 100 miles fo your home, and you fail to attend you risk having the lawyer apply for a capious. A capious is an order by a judge that permits you to be arrested and brought to the court for a deposition. i suggest that you attend the depostion. I would also have the document reviewed by a lawyer to determine whether you risk any exposure by testifying.
