Art. 1444.  Motion to terminate; limit examination

At any time during the taking of the deposition, on motion of a party or of the deponent and upon a showing that the examination is being conducted in bad faith or in such manner as unreasonably to annoy, embarrass, or oppress the deponent or party, the court in which the action is pending may order the officer conducting the examination to cease forthwith from taking the deposition, or may limit the scope and manner of the taking of the deposition as provided in Article 1426.  If the order made terminates the examination, it shall be resumed thereafter only upon the order of the court.  Upon demand of the objecting party or deponent, the taking of the deposition shall be suspended for the time necessary to make a motion for an order.  The provisions of Article 1469 apply to the award of expenses incurred in relation to the motion.
