Ceresney flashback: deposing ‘The Donald,’ part II

Bruce Carton | August 10, 2016

I wrote here last month about a deposition that Andrew Ceresney took back in 2007 of the Republican Party Nominee for President, Donald Trump. Ceresney, who is now the SEC's Director of Enforcement, was at the time a partner in private practice at the law firm Debevoise & Plimpton.

An article in today's Washington Post provides many more interesting details about that deposition, including the fact that one of Ceresney's colleagues working on the case and the deposition with him (defending a New York Times reporter named Timothy L. O'Brien in a lawsuit filed by Trump) was none other than ... Mary Jo White! White, who is now the chair of the SEC, was also a partner at Debevoise & Plimpton at the time of the deposition in 2007.
