Suppression of Deposition Law and Legal Definition

Suppression of deposition is a remedy obtained on motion raising an objection to the use of a deposition on the ground of defects or irregularities in the proceeding for and the taking of a deposition.

The following is an example of a case law referring to suppression of deposition:

Defendant is not entitled to suppression of his deposition in a dental malpractice action because of numerous errors in the transcription of the deposition, where the obvious transcription errors have not so permeated the deposition transcript as to warrant suppression of the entire deposition. [Principale v. Lewner, 187 Misc. 2d 878 (N.Y. Sup. Ct. 2001)].
