Dumb Questions

In my work life I spend a fair amount of time sitting in conference rooms attending depositions. For those blissfully ignorant of what a deposition is – lucky you – it’s basically questioning by one or more parties’ attorneys of a potential witness to learn facts about the case and avoid surprises at trial.

Sometimes questions get asked which validate all jokes about stupid lawyers.

A new favorite with names changed for legal like reasons:

“Did Blueco enter into an agreement with Redbarn before Blueco existed?”

Update: When I told Jim about this question he suggested that the appropriate objection is “Objection: Lacks foundation, in any universe.”
