Probate litigation depositions can be many things – tense, perhaps emotionally draining for the deponent and the parties. But as David R. Struthers of Godfrey | Johnson PC illustrates, learning about probate depositions can be entertaining as well.
His tongue-in-cheek materials discuss the prudence of determining in each case whether it is desirable to “open the door of discovery,” despite the endless enjoyment every lawyer derives from conducting depositions. Amidst the humor are practical tips, such as applying to the probate court to use the Colorado Rules of Civil Procedure in order to engage in discovery and requesting permission to videotape the deposition. Struthers is truly a splendid wordsmith who excels at cleverly crafting instructional materials disguised as humor. But his true talent is with the guitar.
In the video clip below, Struthers explains the difficulty in removing a troublesome client who returns to Spencer Crona’s door every single day.
