Must have been quite a deposition.

Speaking of churning the bill, has a post about a case where "one attorney billed 239 hours and over $90,000 to summarize a one-day deposition transcript of under 400 pages."  If the deposition were actually 24 hours-and I suspect that the deposition was probably less than half that amount of time-then the attorney spent nearly 10 hours summarizing each hour of the deposition.  Blaise Pascal wrote about how it took longer to write a short letter than a long one.  Apparently that is also true for deposition summaries.
