Contrary to popular belief, there are actual rules of advocacy.
There have been changes to the rules of procedure on depositions and rules of civility that have been adopted by many states, so one doesn’t see it as much as they used to but there was a time when lawyers would object, in some basis, to literally every question. Most of the time those objections were absolutely baseless. That would be asserting an issue that would be meritless and now would be a violation of Rule 3.1. This video reviews the rules surrounding meritorious claims and contentions; candor toward the tribunal; and fairness to the opposing party and counsel.
