Five Godawful YouTube Video Depositions

Bitter Lawyer is launching a new deposition video series shortly and, in celebration, we’ve collected five of the most heinous video depo excerpts on YouTube. While we’re omitting one classic one, which we’ll highlight later in our series, here are the five we’ve curated so far. Consider this a great resource in how not to take or conduct a deposition. Or in how to be an asshat.

#1 You Have a Case of Incipient Verbal Diarrhea

Lawyer Joe Jamail took the deposition of an expert witness, Texas style. Highlights include the quote about incipient verbal diarrhea, Joe calling one of the attorneys “fat boy,” and the deponent asking “are you threatening to fight?” Actually, watch the whole thing, it nearly leads to a fight.

    I am not going to sit for 10 minutes listening to some woman (likely pig-like homely), with her panting and moaning in the background, even if the male allegedly pleasuring said pig eventually puts his head into the picture to verify that he was being recorded.

    I have long stood up for the fact that it is quality, not quantity, to go after. Therefore, I will not have sex at all, rather than have sex with pig-like creatures, even if it results in the fact that my member goes unused.
