Proposed Rules ArchivesCrR 4.6 - Depositions
Submitted by the Superior Court Judges Association
It is submitted that CrR 4.6 should be amended to allow use of depositions for purposes of discovery and/or potential impeachment, giving the trial judge broader discretion to allow or disallow a deposition based on the particular circumstances of each case. These changes would provide some flexibility for taking depositions in a less costly fashion than is presently the case.
At this time, there is no request to amend the comparable rule for courts of limited jurisdiction.
