At trial, can I ask court to allow me to read selected testimony in x-defendant's deposition transcript into court script.

Asked about 1 year ago - Van Nuys, CA

So I don't have to question x-defendant with the same questions when I call him as witness to speed up trial? This is a limited non-jury trial.

Additional information

per Cal Civ Code 2025.620(e) seems to allow it. Am I wrong?

    Answered . No, you have to ask the question at trial. If he testifies differently or says he does not know, then you can ask to read his deposition.
