    I am being Sued in the District Court, I am the Defendant, it is a Civil matter, and the Plaintiff's lawyer has asked me if I intend to give evidence at the trial.

    Do I have to stipulate to him that I will give evidence or not? I have provided him with a copy of my Defence.

    Thanks

    Hi @Yorkie
    Civil litigation procedure and practice can be a complex beast. Have you retained a solicitor and/or barrister to assist you?
    If not, have you completed a pre-trial conference to attempt to meditate the dispute and settle the matter pre-trial?

    In relation to your question, and as a general rule, rule 45I of the District Court Rules 2005 (WA) sets out:
    Further information:
    General/Civil Cases

    Hope this helps. Please keep us updated with your progress.
