Depending upon which state you are in or whether you are in federal court, the number and types of questions allowed can be different. Another form of discovery is called depostions. Depositions involve a a party or witness appearing and answering questions under oath. Since the pandemic, attorneys have expanded the use Zoom in taking depositions.
