I am moving out of state in 3 days. I'm a witness in a wrongful termination lawsuit and I was served a deposition subpoena. I have been up front that I'm moving. The process server must have panicked thinking I was about to move because they followed me to my doctor, pushed past my doctor's receptionist and served me in the middle of my doctor's appointment. My doctor (psychiatrist) was very upset because it violated other patient's privacy, as well as my own. Can I contest this subpoena?
How exactly were you improperly served? This seems like personal service to me. Contesting a subpoena because a Doctor was upset doesn’t seem like it goes anywhere.

You have been served. You need to comply. The process server was creative for sure but that does not negate your obligations under the subpoena.
