Problematic Deposition Bill Gone for the Year

January 25, 2018

VACo opposed SB 613 (Surovell), which provides that when a local governing body is named a deponent, it shall designate at least one member of the body to serve as a deponent on its behalf. The testimony of the designee is subject to the same duties, responsibilities, and consequences of a corporate or organizational deponent as determined by the court. This bill would fly in the face of long standing legal precedent.

The bill was continued to the Senate Courts of Justice Committee in 2019 at a 15-0 vote.
