Cox deposition wraps up after 7 hours

From The Detroit News:

Attorney General Mike Cox has completed seven hours of questioning in a federal lawsuit brought by the family of a slain exotic dancer, but he hesitated as he left the courthouse when asked whether his deposition is completed.

“I’ve done my seven hours,” Cox told reporters after leaving the deposition in the case of Tamara “Strawberry” Greene. “If the court wants anything more out of me, I’ll be here to provide it.”

Witnesses in civil lawsuits can only be deposed for seven hours without a court order to extend the deposition.

Chief U.S. District Judge Gerald E. Rosen last week denied a request from Norman Yatooma, the lawyer for Greene’s family, to extend the deposition. But he said Yatooma could make a new request if he still had specific questions he wanted to ask after the seven hours was used up.
