Great moments in legal depositions

The extremely brief legal deposition of Jeffrey Epstein shown below, whose sex-slave ring involving underage women has been in the news recently, is really something to see. I think it must have occurred before his plea deal in 2007.

For those unfamiliar with it, a legal deposition is a pre-trial process where people give testimony under oath outside of a courtroom. It becomes part of the official record of the case and the proceedings can then be used in a court trial. A judge is not required to be present but lawyers for the two sides are. A court stenographer records the proceedings, often aided by an audio recording and more rarely, as in this case, by a video.
