It is a challenge for litigators to effectively balance the use of current technology with the need for effective discovery and litigation. One method for achieving the desired balance is the utilization of remote deposition technology. By following the rules provided below, an attorney can participate in many depositions without having to leave his or her office, or even home.
California Code of Civil Procedure 2025.310 (“CCP”) allows for the right of any person, other than the deponent, to attend a deposition by remote electronic means without the necessity of a court order or the consent of anyone, without any reason or justification, and without preconditions or limitation.
