As a CEO, Can I Stop Them from Deposing Me?
If I’m a CEO, can I stop the opposition from deposing me? Well, typically people try to depose the CEO as a form of harassment or other C-level people. Florida has a new rule that says you have to use less intrusive methods instead of depositions. In other words, you have to first ask written questions or take depositions of other employees to find out whether it is absolutely necessary to still depose those C-level people. Talk to an experienced trial lawyer to understand when those circumstances apply.
