Depositions in Consumer Bankruptcy Cases

This session will focus on depositions in consumer bankruptcy cases, such as lien strips, objections to exemptions, good-faith challenges to chapter 13 plans, and dischargeability issues in consumer bankruptcy cases. All aspects of a deposition will be considered. How does one prepare to take someone’s deposition? How do you prepare your client to be deposed? How do you conduct yourself when representing the deponent? What can you object to? Can the deposition be stopped? How does one resolve objections and disputes during the deposition? What uses can be made of the deposition transcript at trial? Consistent with past years’ litigation sessions, this year’s panel will conduct demonstrations of depositions in real-world consumer bankruptcy settings.
