I THINK YOU SHOULD LEAVE
| by Heather Duncan, Esq.
We think of depositions as very private proceedings, but that may not always be the case. There are statutes addressing who can be present at a deposition (parties to the action, their officers and counsel) but there are no specific California or federal statutes that dictate who cannot attend. What this means is that unless they are specifically excluded by agreement or court order, anyone can attend a deposition.
