My question involves court procedures for the state of: Tennessee
There is lawsuit that has been filed between members of a PLLC. The plaintiff is alleging breach of fudiciary duty by the defendant. Can the defendant's lawyers question potential witnesses to see if they have relevant testimony before they subpoena them or even name them in discovery? (the witness in question was the mistress of the plaintiff at the time the breach was alleged and has been sent a letter by the defendant's lawyers asking to speak with them about any knowledge of the facts) Is this legal?
