Helf v. Chevron U.S.A. Inc., 2015 UT 81 (September 4, 2015)
Sep 4, 2015
Granting summary judgment, the district court excluded deposition testimony because it lacked foundation and was nonresponsive to the question posed by the employers counsel during the deposition. The Utah Supreme Court concluded that it was error to exclude the testimony on this basis. The Court held that counsel who was asking a question in a deposition had an obligation to object to the deponent’s non-responsive answer in order to avoid waiver of the objection.
