Businesses face the possibility of a civil suit by private citizens or other businesses on a daily basis. Initial information used to build the case and determine its merits is obtained through depositions. A detailed description of the process is available in LawInfo.
Why Depositions are Important in Discovery
Depositions are an important part of discovery and consist of questions used to gather case information and testimony. They are a thorough and valuable part of civil suits in state and federal courts.
Depositions take place outside of the courtroom. Your session may be held in a conference room or legal office. You will receive notice of and must comply with the procedure. Because your answers are given under oath, false testimony is considered perjury.
Responses may be used during hearings and trials. Each party in a deposition may have an attorney present for guidance and to make sure the procedure is carried out properly.
