You've Been Served: Surviving a Deposition
Wodarz, Nan
School Business Affairs, v76 n8 p28-30 Oct 2010
School business managers are in the unique position of supervising the areas of the operation that present the greatest opportunities for legal issues to arise. New construction and renovation projects are strewn with legal land mines. The possibility of lawsuits hovers like a black cloud over personnel issues. Opportunities for transportation or food service issues to crop up are continuous. And school business officials often are called on to weigh in on issues involving equal education and unhappy parents. Attorneys handle most of the issues related to any litigation pending against schools or districts; yet there is one area in which school business managers are on their own: depositions. During a deposition, the district's attorney can offer advice and moral support, but little else. It is a stressful process and the best preparation is to learn a little bit about this portion of the legal process. In this article, the author talks about deposition and offers tips in surviving a deposition.
