Should Britney's Deposition Be Videotaped?

Should Britney's Deposition Be Videotaped?

Britney is not expected to be in court until this afternoon, but there was a hearing this morning regarding whether or not her deposition would be videotaped. Kevin's lawyers say that written court transcripts don't portray Brit's usual sarcastic tone while Britney's attorney claimed that videotape was unnecessary and would be leaked onto the Internet. In the end, the commissioner ruled that she would not be recorded, but what do you think — should the judge have ruled to videotape Britney's deposition?

Jebus! She needs to be left alone. She is only getting worse, and her every move being photographed and taped are only making it worse.

No, but I am a little curious.

I think she looks pretty here. People can hate her or whatever, but I am still rooting for this girl. I think if she would get help or medication or whatever she needs, she could get back on track. She can sell cd's and she may not be a very good singer but I like her 1 million times better than Jessica Simpson.

Why is it legally necessary to videotape her depo? Since it's a domestic matter there's no jury. Only the judge and the parties in the case will need to see her testimony and they will be in the courtroom anyway. There doesn't seem to be any purpose.

This wouldn't be an issue, if the dumb you know what would just have abided by the judge's rules. :oy: NO SYMPATHY FOR HER at all! If it were videotaped it's her own damn fault because she could have avoided this whole mess by just doing the few simple things asked of her. :rant:

No, the media would be playing that all the time and that is the last thing I want to see on the news.

Videotaped depositions are very common today and have been for many years now. I can't stand Britney and am so sick of hearing about her but I will say in her case I think the request should be denied because it would somehow end up being make public and it shouldn't be. I agree with Posty...she just needs to go away and take Lohan with her.

"Asking to videotape a deposition is not for the media - it's for the Judge/Court. It has nothing to do with it being "our" business. And sometimes a videotaped deposition is necessary. ""The transcripts can be leaked just as easily as the video."I agree with these statements. We never saw the transcript from her previous visit, so why should we think that a video would be leaked? If they do it for other cases, they should do it for hers. No reason to get special treatment just because one of the parents is famous.

Videotaped? No. But voice recorded? Yes. It may not capture her sarcasm fully but I think it'd work. Then again it wouldn't capture her body language and generally that reveals a lot about a person.

i think it should be recorded so there can be some legal record of it. There will still be court reporter typing everything up maybe? i dont know.

I am so sick of this waste of a human life. Please just STOP blogging about her....she's awful. An awful human being.

While it's not unusual to videotape depositions, usually the only record is written transcripts. If they knew in advance that the dep would be videotaped, I'm sure that her lawyers would do their best to prepare her and train her not to use a sarcastic tone.

I would say no to anyone else except Britney. This bitch is just too much of a train wreck not to watch. It would be great to see the real Britney try to explain herself in that bitchy, sarcastic way of hers. Would love to see that shiz!

YES!!! A video tape deposition is so much better than just reading a transcript, and depositions are SEALED so they do not get leaked. If it is leaked just look to the court, videotographer, or the parties involed. It is so much more important to see the body language, you can tell if someone is lying, and you definately catch the sarcasm. That is why we ALWAYS insist of a video tape depo of the Plaintiff at my law firm.
