Expert Preparation Fees Permitted

Posted In Discovery

Reid v. Johnston, C.A. 08C-01-025-JRS (December 3, 2009)

In this case of first impression, the Court held that a party seeking to depose an opponent’s expert must pay for the expert's preparation time. However, to prevent abuse, the Court limited the fees to a time period equal to the length of the actual deposition. Talk fast to save money.
