Provides that when an officer, as defined in the bill, who is called as a deposition witness files a motion for a protective order because the discovery sought by the deposition is obtainable from some other source that is more convenient, less burdensome, or less expensive, the burden is on the party seeking the deposition to defeat such a motion by showing that (i) the officer's deposition is reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence, (ii) the officer may have personal knowledge of discoverable information that cannot be discovered through other means, and (iii) a deposition of a representative other than the officer or other methods of discovery are unsatisfactory, insufficient, or inadequate.
corrupt fx co gov can "QUASH" your motion to force a Corporation to testify ...
"if the corporation would be forced to incriminate itself"
"if the judge deems the reasons for asking for evidece are inadequate"
(note: the 2nd phrase, it's always been illegal for force testimony from anyone if the possible testimony does not prove or disprove or does not show character (if character is allowed at all). the bill is just a democrat hack to weaken and pervert long existing laws)
