A fascinating deposition (video)

| July 25, 2006

I’ve been deposed, oh, a dozen or more times, and I’ve attended at least another dozen depositions, ususally of opposing experts. Being deposed is my least favorite part of serving as an expert witness — somewhat like going to the dentist for 7 hours, with occasional breaks. (In fact, I plan to have a rather excruciating deposition scene in a novel that I’m writing.)

I’ve seen some intense exchanges among attorneys, but I’ve never seen anything like this — especially not with the deponent involved (and cursed at and threatened by the opposing attorney).
