What are video depositions?

Video depositions are used to record the testimony of a witness who is not able to appear in a courthouse or legal setting. Since the outbreak of the Covid 19 pandemic, courtrooms and law firms rely on remote video testimony to ensure speedy and transparent legal proceedings. However, video depositions have been useful even before the pandemic began, such as if a witness is ill or disabled and unable to travel or appear in court. Additionally, expert witnesses have been known to be excused from appearing in court and can be deposed over video instead in such a circumstance.
