Link To Judge Mazzoni's Opinion on Privilege Against Self-Incrimination At Depositions

Earlier this week, a synopsis was provided for the case of Hilburn v. Jones, 2012-CV-6401 (C.P. Lacka. Co. Aug. 4, 2014 Mazzoni, J.), in which Judge Robert A. Mazzoni of the Lackawanna County Court of Common Pleas reversed a decision by the Lackawanna County Special Trial Master regarding the issue of whether or not a deponent had the right to assert the privilege against self-incrimination at a deposition.   Judge Mazzoni reviewed the law in this regard and opined that the defendant did not have a reasonable basis to claim the privilege at a deposition.

I have since secured a copy of that Hilburn decision which can be viewed online HERE.
