Author: David M. Malone
The mechanics of taking and defending depositions are simple, but to avoid mistakes you must be thoroughly familiar with the applicable rules. Small or inadvertent mistakes can cost money and time, and prevent the use of valuable deposition testimony on behalf of your client. In this popular book, David M. Malone and Peter T. Hoffman help you master the critical deposition skills you need to compete in the courtroom.
The Effective Deposition, Revised Second Edition, incorporates the 2000 Amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. These amendments focus on, among other things, the scope of discovery, the length of depositions, and what is required by the mandatory disclosures. This book discusses how to take and defend depositions under the Federal Rules as they existed through the year 2000 and note any changes due to the 2000 Amendments. Since many states still follow the pre-1993 version of the Federal Rules concerning discovery, the practice under the pre-1993 version is examined as well.
