At a dep, I am doing the direct of my own guy. The plaintiff's lawyer doesn't show, so I have the smoothest dep ever, and.... the court reporter is new, and still in supervision (some sort of training), and since she is new and nice she brings HOME MADE COOKIES TO PASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can I ask you a question? Why the hell would you depose your own client before trial? Just curious.

When you stipulate to use an expert’s deposition in place of his appearance at trial. So-so common in employment, worker’s comp, and some auto suits. (actually really common for doctors in comp cases, come to think of it). I guess you can also do it when your witness is sick and going to die or lose his mind (never actually seen that done, though).

Gotcha, I thought you were talking about your client when you said "my own guy". I do them a lot to save costs for experts or out-of-town witnesses. We call it a [i]de bene esse[/i] deposition.
