|F.R.Civ.P. 32. Use of Depositions in Court Proceedings |
L.R. 32-1 Use at Trial or on a Motion . Deposition transcripts to be used at trial or on a motion shall be marked as provided in L.R. 16-2.7. The original deposition shall be lodged with the Clerk on or before the first day of a trial or at least ten (10) days before a motion unless required to be filed earlier under L.R. 16-10.2. In addition, all original depositions not so lodged shall be brought to court by the attorney in custody of the same for any trial. Any party may by notice require an original deposition to be lodged for a motion proceeding. At a trial or motion, the Court may order a lodged deposition to be filed or received in evidence, or may direct a party to prepare extracts from a deposition to be filed or received in evidence. The requirement for marking depositions shall not apply to depositions intended to be used at trial solely for impeachment.
L.R. 32-2 Original of Transcript . The original transcript of a deposition shall, unless otherwise stipulated to on the record at the deposition, after signing and correction, or waiver of the same, as provided in F.R.Civ.P. 30 (e), be sent to the attorney noticing the deposition. The said attorney shall keep the original deposition under his control until final disposition of the case or until called upon to lodge the original deposition with the Court pursuant to L.R. 32-1. A copy of a deposition signed and certified as required in F.R.Civ.P. 30(e) and (f) may be used in lieu of an original.
