    It varies by state. For example in Wisconsin, a defendant in a lawsuit is not obligated to appear before he is properly served with service of process. This means that a plaintiff would not be able to obtain a judgement against a defendant in Wisconsin unless the defendant is properly brought into the lawsuit.
