The Effective Deposition will prepare you to successfully take, defend, and use the deposition to its greatest advantage. Advocates and law students have long relied on The Effective Deposition to get essential know-how for the most critical step in discovery. In this updated Fourth Edition, David Malone, Peter Hoffman and contributing author, Anthony J. Bocchino, again apply their expertise as attorneys and educators to bring you critical information and insight. They explain new discovery rules in evidence and civil procedure, and they discuss the impact of continuing technological developments, including e-discovery and digital transcription, on your practice. New to this edition is a chapter dedicated to Rule 30(b)(6) organization depositions--the most powerful and efficient discovery tool available in complex litigation. This edition also provides new and expanded material on using depositions in motion practice and trial and taking and using preservation depositions. Depositions remain a critical element of your practice, regardless of whether you face trial or alternative dispute resolution. With the increasing trend toward non-trial resolutions, depositions are being used more and more in motions, negotiated settlements, mediations, arbitrations, and dismissals. Be prepared for it all with The Effective Deposition.

This concise and comprehensive Understanding treatise is designed to complement any products liability casebook. Part I consists of an overview of the complex body of products liability caselaw and statutes that has developed over the past century. The chapters follow a functional approach and begin with the four theories that are the foundation of all products liability cases: warranty, misrepresentation, negligence, and strict liability. Separate chapters in Part I then examine the principle types of product defects (design, manufacturing, and failure to warn) and some of the problems involved with proving that the product was defective and that the defect was the cause of the injury. Finally chapters focus on the various defenses available in a products liability action and the types of damages that a plaintiff may seek. An understanding of products liability law also requires an examination of the issues involved in the prosecution or defense of a products liability case. Part II addresses a range of those issues, including researching the case; drafting the complaint; interrogatories and requests to admit facts; requests for the production of documents; discovery and evidence depositions; protective orders; and discovery enforcement.

Review: "Using as a study their own experience of pioneering computer-mediated communication in Alaska in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the authors conduct a 'nexus analysis' of those events and discourses. As email and audio/video conferencing technologies expanded the possibilities for education and social interaction, the authors played an active role in shaping and analyzing their use. Looking back on that early formative period and assessing its impact on the present world, the authors evaluate moments of social importance in order to examine the linkages among social practices, Alaskan peoples, and technologies. They consider the power of communication media to cause and ramify change."--BOOK JACKET
