2011 Connecticut Code
Title 52 Civil Actions
Chapter 899 Evidence
Sec. 52-151. Custody and opening of depositions.

      Sec. 52-151. Custody and opening of depositions. Depositions returned to the court shall remain in the custody of its clerk, unless suppressed by order of court, until final judgment is rendered in the case. Any such deposition may be opened by any clerk of the court at any time and in any judicial district. The clerk shall certify thereon the time and place of opening the deposition.

      (1949 Rev., S. 7874; P.A. 78-280, S. 2, 127; P.A. 82-160, S. 72.)

      History: P.A. 78-280 substituted "judicial district" for "county"; P.A. 82-160 rephrased the section.

      Infraction of statute does not necessarily render deposition inadmissible. 58 C. 495. Deposition is not an exhibit, but testimony in the custody of the clerk until offered in evidence. Court did not abuse its discretion in refusing to admit deposition in which plaintiff had been deprived of complete cross-examination. 164 C. 262. Cited. 211 C. 555. Cited. 229 C. 716.
