If I am sued in another state, whether it be a state court or federal court, and I cannot afford to hire an attorney or even to pay to attend a court hearing, what might happen? I would have to do this pro se, but I suspect the possible suit is harassment knowing my finances. I have seen a number of court cases where even the attorney is only on the telephone, but that seems very awkward. I am less concerned about the pro se issues, but without money for a lawyer or travel what happens? The other side is hugely wealthy and I suspect just trying to make trouble and seek some sort of a default judgment.
