The purpose of this Note is to advocate the full use of discovery depositions of non-party witnesses in California for the prosecution. By examining the reluctance of the California courts to implement prosecutorial depositions, possible federal constitutional barriers, and the policy arguments for and against such criminal discovery procedures, this Note will demonstrate the necessity for curative legislation.
