Judge Makes Interrupting Lawyer Produce a Training Video

A Federal Judge in Iowa found that an attorney was deliberately making excessive objections during depositions, and as a sanction, has ordered that attorney to produce a training video for lawyers, explaining why the tactic is improper. She and her firm are contesting the sanction… natch.

I guess the takeaway is, don’t object to much. Well, really, it’s don’t be a jerk. Object when it’s prudent, but not merely to obstruct the process. Though, Florida courts frown on “standing objections”, so the baseline is low for when repeated objections need to be made.
