The subpoena was filled out to serve my former employer and myself, however, as I was no longer employed at that company, they didn't serve me until 1 week prior to the trial. The subpoena is to appear as a witness and produce documents. I have no documents. I was served on a Thursday and the trial is on the following Thursday. I wouldn't have any problems attending, however, I had a long planned 1 week vacation starting on the day after I was served and I wasn't set to return until the following Sunday, thus I can't attend. I contacted the attorney and explained I could provide a declaration or appear if he could continue the trial, but he is threatening me with damages of $100,000 for any judgment against his client plus arrest. How can I resolve this?
