March 2003 - Beam Me Up, Scottie

This contribution is from Timothy K. Borchers of Seattle, Wash. (Cozen O’Connor). It’s from the deposition of an accountant “who was adjusting the damage claims offered by a plaintiff in a $100 million products liability class action. The witness was asked to identify all of the managers, staff accountants, and other employees who worked on the project.”
