Morning Open Thread is an open discussion forum for human interest news of the day.
I have participated in several hundred depositions over the past 40+ years. Sometimes as a witness, and sometimes as an observer/consultant.
If one stays in this business long enough, you see just about everything. There are some that become classics. Thanks to the Internet, some of the classics are now memorialized for the public to see. Some of my favorite depositions have involved witnesses who are extremely concrete-minded. They truly make a lawyer earn his or her fee.
The New York Times published this exact verbatim reenactment from the court reporter’s transcript of such a a memorable deposition.
This is a daily open thread. There are several hosts, each host being responsible for picking a “theme of the day” and starting the discussion. However, there is no hard and fast rule about staying on topic, especially if you have a personal story burning a hole in your pocket trying to escape.
Pictures and videos are welcome in the comments. If photos are used, please be sure you own the copyright. We would rather see your personal photos anyway, rather than random stuff copied from the internet. Our only request is that if you use pictures or videos, take pity on those who don’t have broadband, and don’t post more than two or three in a single comment.
This is an open thread. Grab your cup, pull up a chair and sit a spell. The floor is open for discussion.
