I gave a deposition last week, I haven't seen the depo or signed it yet, but I wonder can I add or retract any answers I gave, I was a nervous wreck and think I gave wrong answers, what are the laws in Mississippi concerning depo's, can I add a page of comments to the depo when I sign it.
If you have a lawyer, ask him or her. If not, on the internet you can find Rule 30 of either the Mississippi or Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (depending upon which court the case is in). They explain when the witness can change deposition answers.
Please recall, the answers I provide are general in nature and are based upon the limited information you have provided. My response is not intended to to create an attorney-client relationship. To obtain legal advice particular to your situation, you would need to speak with an attorney and provide more detail.
Did you or your lawyer request a read and sign? Are you represented or trying to handle this yourself.
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but instead need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice.
Consult with your lawyer and seek this advice from him or her. Good luck.
Answer is for informational purposes only and does not create an attorney-client relationship.
