If someone issues a hazmanah to someone who resides out of town/country to attend din torah where the mazmin resides, is the muzman obligated to travel to attend the din torah?

Answer:

No, the principle halachah is that the nitvah – the person who is being summoned to Beis Din – can decide on the location of the Din Torah, and the tove’a has to go to the place of the nitva.

The source of this halachah is the Maharik, and it is ruled by the Rema in the laws of Dayanim.

Best wishes.
