Ga. Comp. R. & Regs. R. 480-44-.01 - Taking of Testimony by Deposition

(1) At any time during the course of the proceeding, the Board or its designee may, in his discretion, permit the testimony of a witness to be taken by deposition. Application to take testimony by deposition shall be made in writing and shall be filed with the Executive Director of the Board and served upon all parties to the proceedings, including counsel for the Board.
(2) The application shall state the name and address of the witness, the subject matter concerning which the witness is expected to testify, the date, time and place of the proposed deposition, and the reason why the witness cannot appear and testify before the Board. The Board or its designee may, in his, her or its discretion, allow the application where the circumstances are such that the witness to be deposed cannot appear before the Board without substantial hardship to the deponent or to the parties to the case or that testimony by any other method will unduly delay expeditious completion of the proceedings. An application for the taking of testimony by deposition shall not be allowed if the deposition would result in any undue burden to another party or any undue delay of the proceedings. If the application is allowed, the Board or its designee should give notice of the taking of the testimony by deposition to all parties.
