A deposition is a discovery tool that is frequently used in lawsuits. At a deposition, a witness is asked questions and he/she must respond under oath.

A court reporter attends the deposition and transcribes the questions and the responses into a written transcript.

The witness is later provided with the transcript and allowed to make changes to it. The witness may have his/her lawyer present at the deposition.

Depositions in California are controlled by California Code of Civil Procedure §2025.
