The Note discusses the procedural and evidentiary problems faced by the California litigant who seeks to take testimony abroad. California Code of Civil Procedure section 2018 (b) is analyzed and shown to be needless constricting of international discovery. Finally, the Note apprises the improvements afforded the litigant by the recent Convention on Taking Evidence Abroad in Civil or Commercial Matters.
