    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

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

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