Can I be Deposed a Second Time in a Single Case?

There are times when someone may be required to participate in a second deposition, but in the State of California, this generally requires a court order.  It may happen if there is a new party that is later added to the case after the original depositions were completed. 

A second deposition will usually consist of new material, but you should take care to review your previous testimony to ensure consistency.  It is possible that some material from the first deposition may cross over into the second, and the implications of your answers need to line up. 

What sometimes happens is that the party tasked with scheduling the first deposition failed to invite another party that they knew was involved in the suit, and the scheduling party then has the burden of explaining why the other group was not included.  Watch the video to learn more.
