He cannot force an ambassador to be deposed, it is a violation of the Vienna Convention.
This ambassador is duly accredited to the UN, and I am sure that the Dept of State's view will be to tell the Judge, no way Jose.
It's nothing to do with this ambassador, but the US doesn't want its own ambassadors dragged into courts around the world.

They said he left for Paris last night, but according to this article, he was here this morning.
