Proposed amendments to Virginia procedure rules

Here are proposed amendments to the Virginia rules of court, including an amendment dealing with the conduct of depositions, in particular targeting speaking objections, in the manner of the revised Rule 30 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

The one speaking objection, if it can be called that, that always bugged me is when I ask a question and the other lawyer says "if he knows," so then the witness says, "I don't know." Is that part of a playbook out there somewhere, of which I never got a copy?
