Rule 7027-1

DEPOSITIONS PRIOR TO COMMENCEMENT OF ADVERSARY PROCEEDING OR PENDING APPEAL WHEN DEPOSITION IS MORE THAN 100 MILES FROM COURTHOUSE

     If, prior to the commencement of an adversary proceeding or pending appeal, a proposed deposition pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 7027 is sought to be taken at a location more than one hundred (100) miles from the courthouse, the Court may provide in the order therefor that, prior to the examination, the party seeking to take the deposition shall pay the expense of the attendance of one attorney for each adverse party, or expected adverse party, including reasonable attorney's fees. Unless the Court orders otherwise, any amounts paid pursuant to this subdivision shall be a taxable cost in the event the party taking the deposition is awarded costs of the adversary proceeding.
