A judge has ordered Caitlyn Jenner to sit for a deposition in her car crash lawsuit, after the reality star didn’t show up for her first scheduled sit-down.
According to court documents obtained by Radar, Jenner failed to appear for her previously scheduled deposition, so the plaintiffs asked a judge to intervene and order Jenner to attend the proceedings.
In a written ruling, the judge stated there is no reason for Jenner not to be deposed.
"Jenner failed to attend her properly noticed deposition. Jenner also fails to establish good cause for a protective order preventing, delaying or restricting her deposition," the ruling states.
Jenner cited several reasons for not wanting to be deposed, including the claim that victim Kim Howe's step-children having no legal standing to sue her.
However, the judge stated, "Jenner offers no other facts establishing that court-imposed restrictions on the timing or order of depositions is necessary...The deposition is not unreasonably cumulative or duplicative, nor is there any demonstration that the same information may be obtained through less intrusive or burdensome measures. There is also no basis to find Jenner’s deposition to be unduly burdensome or expensive. Jenner’s deposition in this action is no different from the deposition of any other party to litigation arising from a multi-vehicle accident."
Both parties were ordered to meet and confer and agree upon a date for Jenner's deposition.
