Civ Pro manual/practice guide?

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Jan 04, 2017 3:45 pm

I am trying to help out a pro bono case involving a veteran with a local legal aid and have some nuanced civ pro issue regarding attending deposition as a party in default. Rutter Guide isnt helpful. What low cost secondary source is out there for something like this? And how much are they?

(I have lexis account I could use)

Not sure what qualifies as a low cost or specifically what question you're trying to answer (and I wouldn't be qualified to answer it anyway), but https://www.oconnors.com/store/products ... rials-2016 is pretty good for covering most things and runs about 100 bucks. I looked at my copy briefly and it gets pretty specific with provisions for service members & default judgments, but there doesn't seem to be anything specifically with what you're asking for. It does cite to the ABA Civil Discovery Standards at page 31 for who may attend a deposition if that helps: http://www.americanbar.org/content/dam/ ... eckdam.pdf

Good luck.

Basically the veteran got an emtry of default against him (he is semi-homeless) and we are trying to attend a deposition of a co-defendant while our motion to set aside the default is pending. Bring in default cuts your right to defend the case or participate in litigation. Therefore no right to receive notice or file any papers. But can a party appear at a co-defendant's deposition is the question. The link you provided is appreciated but it doesnt address this issue.
