Out of state pro se plaintiff in federal court

Los Angeles, CA |

Would that mean I have to appear at the court hearings in person?

  1. All parties to litigation generally must appear at court hearings. If a party is represented by counsel the counsel will make the appearances on behalf of the client. If a party is pro per, that party will need to personally appear. The hearings will take place in the courthouse where the suit is filed.

  2. Yes. That is why it is generally advisable to retain local counsel.
