How much time does a deponent (case - United States District Court for The District of Nevada) have to review, change and sign the deposition transcript?
I looked up the law, NEVADA RULES OF CIVIL PROCEDURE. Which law counts for a federal court case?
The rule 30 (e) says "deponent shall have 30 days" to review, change and sign the deposition transcript.
Is it correct that this is a minimum, not a maximum? It doesn't say "must review and sign within 30 days". Am I correct that a deponent has at least 30 days time, and can make changes AFTER 30 DAYS?
RULE 30. DEPOSITIONS UPON ORAL EXAMINATION
(e) Review by Witness; Changes; Signing. If requested by the deponent or a party before completion of the deposition, the deponent shall have 30 days after being notified by the officer that the transcript or recording is available in which to review the transcript or recording and, if there are changes in form or substance, to sign a statement reciting such changes and the reasons given by the deponent for making them. The officer shall indicate in the certificate prescribed by subdivision (f)(1) whether any review was requested and, if so, shall append any changes made by the deponent during the period allowed.
