Hi Brian, I'm Stacy. Please give me a moment to review your question.
Hi my name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help.
Under Rule 30(b)(3)(A), a party may choose to record the deposition by various methods, including sound, soundand-visual, or stenographically. Fed. R. Civ. P. 30(b) (3). The chosen method must be identified in the notice of the deposition and the deposing party shall bear the expense of the recording. Any other party, at its own expense and after giving notice to the deponent and other parties, may designate another method of recording in addition to the method identified in the notice of deposition. Fed. R. Civ. P. 30(b)(3)(B).
The person who is deposing the witness shall bear the expense of the recording and all parties should receive copies. They are not separately billed. Does that adequately answer your question?
that is correct, but you may want to still ask them because they may not care if they have a videotaped copy or a typed transcript. but according to the rule i stated above, they are all entiteld to the chosen method by the deposing party.
