Strategies for Compelling 30(b)(6) Testimony

Published by Minnesota Association for Justice and Washington State Association for Justice


Summary

Getting information from corporate adversaries is challenging at best. Rule 30(b)(6) is the most underused and misunderstood weapon in the arsenal of a trial lawyer. Harnessing that power of 30(b)(6) requires thoroughly understanding of the law, then crafting airtight 30(b)(6) notices, and then asking the correct questions to build a record to expose the adversary’s obstruction. When properly executed 30(b)(6) can be analogized to jujitsu. The power comes from deflecting the adversary’s obstructive conduct back upon them. This advanced deposition program enables David to face Goliath without fear. This course will cover the five basic categories that encompass the duties of the organization responding to a Rule 30(b)(6) notice:

I. Duty to Object to Defective Notice;
II. Duty to Appear;
III. Duty to Designate;
IV. Duty to Prepare; and
V. Duty to Substitute.
