I have seen a "general consensus" (which may or may not be accurate) on the Internet that one cannot successfully sue for lost wages to attend a civil trial. For a district court action in Minnesota, what statute, court rule, legal theory, and/or case law supports or opposes this idea? Note that the lost wages are only to attend court proceedings, not due to an injury or any employment-related claim.My question does relate to a party in a lawsuit, whose counterclaim includes lost wages to attend trial. As stated, it sounds like lost wages for a party to attend trial are not actionable. I am just looking for the statute, court rule, legal theory, and/or case law to back up that assertion, given that this civil trial is in district court in Minnesota.
