Diwataman's Witness List


Previous release

Previous Motion to take Additional Deposition


Has he deposed Austin (W-14) yet?  Or is he asking Austin's mother and sister questions first to be able to use their answers when he does depose him?

Jeralyn:

Will the defense have to release recordings and/or transcripts of these depositions under the rules of reciprocal discovery? Is there any timetable with which they would have to comply in doing so. I am very curious to learn what they asked some of these witnesses, and what the witnesses answers were.

No.  The prosecution is present during depositions, so I don't know it qualifies as "reciprocal discovery" anyways, and depositions are generally not made public.

Depositions are not publicly released. You won't ever see them in their entirety. You may see portions quoted in pleadings, or  portions used to impeach the hearing or trial testimony of a witness who was deposed, but otherwise they are not public.
