The Photocopier Deposition

I'm not immune from the bandwagon, and in this case there are two I've hitched to: adoration for the Upright Citizens Brigade (from which Amy Poehler sprung) and grimaces/amusement at the reenactment of a cringe-worthy deposition that turned on this key question: "When you say 'photocopying machine,' what do you mean?"

The word-for-word reenactment, albeit with full dramatic license, is particularly interesting as it originated from a legal dispute right here in Ohio. For a little background and editorial comment from one of the attorneys involved, check out this article in the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
