Phoenix, AZ asked in Civil Litigation for Arizona

Q: During my deposition, am I required to answer questions in all aspects of my life, or is just one role identified?

I am summoned for a deposition. In 2019 I was the owner of a vehicle that an employee of mine was driving when involved in an accident. I was her supervisor. In late 2020, her and I started dating.

A: An Arizona attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Who is taking the deposition? If it is by the plaintiff's attorney, your carrier may have assigned an attorney to you. If that's the case, they should brief you on the scope of questions you could anticipate, and what issues might be considered relevant and which would be irrelevant. If not, consider reaching out to an Arizona attorney for guidance on what to expect. Good luck
