Review the rules of the road ... civil rules applicable to depositions.
Generally, depositions are governed by Rule 30 and state court rules are modeled after this rule. Before handling a deposition it is important to check for any local rules relevant to depositions as well to avoid any embarrassment down the road in front of an incredibly full docket and busy judge. This video discusses notice and limitations and reviews tips on taking the deposition and how to handle objections at the time of the examination and whether you may move to terminate or limit the deposition.
