“Case of Incipient Verbal Diarrhea”

Witness depositions are often very dry affairs.  A lot of mundane questions about subtle details that may or may not make a difference at trial- they are often used for discovering information, gaining admissions, and testing theories. 

But sometimes they get very animated. For  an amusing look at one such deposition, take a look at this one in Texas. (We watched this recently at a NITA deposition training- it is quite an entertaining look at an example of "depositions gone wild":

(By the way, the witness is right, sometimes we lawyers DO get a "case of insipient verbal diarrhea". . .)

    I love that video. But believe me, not all depositions are that interesting. Most are completely professional, much to the chagrin of many a bored lawyer. Although this particular depo does play into the public’s common perception of lawyers.

  2. Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re
    using? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m
    looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to
    ask!
