Right to Videotape Deposition of a Party Upheld




In its recent decision in the case of Dougherty v. Heller, 2014 Pa. Super. 170 (Pa. Super. Aug. 14, 2014)(Maj. Op. by Bender, P.J.E.)(Concurring and Dissenting Op. by Mundy, J.), the Pennsylvania Superior Court ruled that, since a party lacks a privacy interest with respect to information disclosed during pre-trial discovery, the Motion to Compel a videotape deposition of a party was properly granted by the trial court and the Motion for Protective Order regarding the videotaped deposition of the party was properly denied by the trial court.
