Judge: Plaintiff Can Compel Videotaped Deposition

compel the videotaping of a deposition even if deposing counsel opposes it. According to Maria Vogel-Short’s 8/21/2008 article at Law.com, Defense counsel had argued that the request to videotape would limit how attorneys conducted discovery. In the ruling, Superior Court Judge Rachelle Harz noted that videotaping has become a common practice in most jurisdictions and the plaintiff’s request did not run afoul of rules governing recorded depositions. Doug Landau applauds Judge Harz’s ruling and has been filming pre-trial depositions of defendants, witnesses and medical experts in New Jersey for over 20 years !
