A proposed law would change the time to complete a deposition from unlimited duration to 7 hours. Currently the law requires the party objecting to the length of the deposition to suspend the deposition and to seek a protective order.
The new law would allow the parties to stipulate to a longer time of deposition if the nature of the case warranted. The idea is to stop abusive and wasteful interrogations. Interestingly, employment cases are excluded from the proposed legislation as a class of cases. See Assembly Bill 1875 seeking to amend CCP § 2025.010.
