I was talking with some lawyers lately about an increasing problem of discovery abuse, particularly during depositions. Apparently some lawyers don’t understand the rules or, if they do, they don’t care about them.
Here is an interesting Order entered in a case that put the hammer down on a lawyer who the Court determined had not acted appropriately during depositions. Download file
Do you have any Orders you would like to share? Trial judges need to know that other trial judges have taken aggressive action to stop what they have determined to be inappropriate conduct and the best way to demonstrate that is a copy of an order. If you have such orders, fax or email them to me and I will post them so that other lawyers may utilize them.
