Most jurors don’t know what a deposition is or the significance and implications of giving sworn testimony. Lawyers who simply try to impeach the witness by referring to and then reading from a page and line in the transcript are missing a golden opportunity to destroy the witness on cross.
In this video I share a great way use prior sworn deposition testimony to impeach the witness on cross. At the same time, I’m teaching the jury all about the significance of depositions. I’d like to know your thoughts so please share your comments!
