« New Legal Fiction: A Book Review | Main | Depositions of Corporate Representatives: The "Second-Bite" Issue »



I remember a deposition I defended as a young lawyer of the sole shareholder of a defendant corporation where the shareholder was individually noticed (and was not a defendant). I repeatedly objected to leading questions and the opposing counsel was incredulous that I would deign to object to his questions as leading. He may have said something like "In my 30 years of practice I have never had so many 'frivolous' objections."

It probably didn't do any good on the deposition because the judge would have ruled that the deponent could be considered adversarial, but it gave me a chance to toe-to-toe with a 30 year veteran of the bar.


@ William, cool story bro
