During the week of July 13, 2009, Attorney Gregory Dell spent several days in Portland, Oregon deposing multiple employees of The Standard Disability Insurance Company. Prior to taking the depositions, The Standard refused to make their employees available for deposition and instructed their attorney to file a motion preventing Attorney Gregory Dell from taking the depositions. The court received multiple motions and entered an opinion stating that our client has the right to take the depositions and The Standard must produce their witnesses. The Standard’s motion for attorney fees against our client was denied. It is obvious that the Standard did not want their claims handling practices exposed through deposition testimony.
