What is a Deposition?
Discovery provides each party with an excellent opportunity to examine all of the opposing side’s legal claims and defenses. A deposition is one of the three primary forms of discovery where both the plaintiff and defense lawyers can question all pertinent witnesses about the case. The deponent’s answers are provided under oath and recorded by an official court reporter. This way, both sides can obtain the official accounts of the other party’s versions of events.
