Good afternoon Ellen, I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. So long as the deposition is properly noticed, there is nothing to prevent the deposing party from issuing a Duces Tecum demand with the deposition, requiring the deponent to bring records to the deposition with them that could otherwise not be obtained through discover which had already been closed---such a requests for Production of Documents. This does not prevent A from objecting to the production of the documents. Neither does it prevent B from filing a motion to compel with the court following the objection and appearance without the demanded documents. I wish you the best in 2013. I understand that you may be disappointed by the Answer you received, as it was not particularly favorable to your situation. Had I been able to provide an Answer which might have given you a successful legal outcome, it would have been my pleasure to do so. You may reply back to me using the Reply to Expert link if you have additional questions. Kindly take a moment to rate my service to you based on the understanding of the law I provided. Please understand that I have no control over the how the law impacts your particular situation. Thank you, Doug
