SEVERAL CASES (CIVIL AND CRIMINAL) HAVE RECENTLY RESULTED IN REQUESTS
TO INTERVIEW OR DEPOSE STAFF (AND INMATE) WITNESSES. QUESTIONS HAVE
COME UP REGARDING THE INFORMATION OR ADVICE THAT SHOULD BE GIVEN IN THESE
SITUATIONS. UNDER THE FEDERAL RULES A WITNESS HAS NO OBLIGATION TO TALK

COUNSEL, EG. PROVIDE A QUIET, PRIVATE MEETING PLACE. IF THE INDIVIDUAL
WISHES NOT TO BE INTERVIEWED THAT IS THEIR CHOICE AND THEIR RIGHT.
IN A
CIVIL CASE IN WHICH THE UNITED STATES IS NOT A PARTY, IF PRIVATE COUNSEL
WANT TO SET UP A DEPOSITION OF AN INMATE AND THE INMATE OBJECTS, THE
INMATE SHOULD COMMUNICATE THAT OBJECTION TO THE PARTIES AND THE COURT . WE
ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO FORCE AN INMATE TO BE DEPOSED.
IN CASES WHERE THE U.S . IS A PARTY (CIVIL OR CRIMINAL) WE SHOULD ASSIST
THE U.S. ATTORNEYS IN CONTACTING ALL KNOWN WITNESSES. IF PRIVATE COUNSEL
WANT TO INTERVIEW STAFF, STAFF SHOULD BE INFORMED AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE OF
THEIR RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS.
