AT ODDS - Lawyers are exercised over a proposed change to the federal rules that govern depositions. As Sue Reisinger reports, 138 leading companies and organizations have signed a letter opposing the proposal that would require, among other things, both parties to confer on the identity of the people whom the company designates to testify on its behalf. Opponents to the change say the rule is well settled that corporations get to choose their deposition witnesses. Among the signers are American Airlines Inc., Bank of America Corp., Exxon Mobil Corp., Ford Motor Co., and General Electric Co. By contrast, the National Consumer Law Center and the National Association of Consumer Advocates argue that the proposal “represents a reasonable change.”
