In a recent case in the Ohio Supreme Court, a lawyer was taking a deposition from an IT worker regarding his office setting. The IT worker pretended not to know what a photocopier was, and hilarity ensued.
In what is apparently a new series called Verbatim, the New York Times made a comedic dramatization of the transcript. It’s worth a watch. One excerpt in particular that got me was:
Defendant: When you say “photocopying machine,” what do you mean?
Plaintiff’s Lawyer: Let me be clear. The term “photocopying machine” is so ambiguous that you can’t picture in your mind what a photocopying machine is in an office setting?
