This is a good list of objections lawyers do make in depositions. But are you sure they are all proper? I'm particularly thinking of "asked and answered." Lawyers can't harass deponents, but there's no rule against asking a question twice. Only when repeated questioning becomes harassment is it prohibited.

I'd be interested to see support in case law or in rules for these form objections.
