Advisory Commission Comments.

Rule 28.01 allows a deposition to be taken before any officer authorized by federal, state, or territorial law to administer oaths. The provisions of Rule 28.02 governing depositions taken in foreign countries are new to Tennessee law.

Advisory Commission Comments [1996].

A lawyer or agent can operate the equipment at a videotaped deposition.

Advisory Commission Comments [2002].

28.03: The cited statute, Tenn. Code Ann. § 24-9-136, adequately covers disqualification of court reporters, so the earlier rule was deleted.
