New Law Governing Deposition Notices, Becomes Effective January 1!
CalDRA launches to help educate legal professionals and the court reporting community about the new law

Following Governor Brown’s signing into law of the John Zandonella Act of 2015, Assembly Bill 1197, authored by Assembly person Susan Bonilla, the Deposition Reporters Association of California today launches an informative website aimed at educating court reporters, court reporting firms, and legal professionals about the law’s requirements and ramifications.

Effective January 1, 2016, legal professionals who prepare deposition notices have new disclosure obligations.

“I encourage court reporting firm owners to contact their clients with a link to to let them know about the new requirements,” said CalDRA President Rich Alossi. “In addition to the full memo, we’ve included sample language for deposition notices as well as printable quick-reference guides tailored for various segments of the industry.”

The Act was named in honor of John Zandonella, CalDRA Founding Member and champion of anti-contracting causes whose passing in 2008 was a loss for the entire reporting profession.

Supported by Consumer Watchdog, Consumer Attorneys of California, and our colleagues at the California Official Court Reporters Association (COCRA), the John Zandonella Act is only the latest success in CalDRA’s longstanding, multiyear leadership in ensuring a level playing field for reporters.
