CONNECTICUT CIVIL PROCEDURE: Superior Court Rejects Apex Rule

Addressing an issue of first impression, the Connecticut Superior Court rejects the claim that a party seeking a deposition must depose low-ranking individuals at an organization prior to noticing the deposition of higher-ranking individuals.  The court finds that the apex rule does not comply with Connecticut law since it shifts the burden to show good cause to the proponent of the deposition.
