Testifying as a physician in a divorce case might not be as high-stakes as testifying in a medical negligence case. But one divorce case that Houston pediatrician James Allison, MD, participated in several years ago showed him you just never know what’s going to happen.

Dr. Allison knew going into the deposition that the divorcing parents disagreed on whether to vaccinate their child; the father was in favor, the mother was not. What he couldn’t anticipate was how that dispute would play out during his testimony.

“The mother’s attorney insisted on reading from the Physician’s Desk Reference (PDR) every adverse reaction that could happen for each and every vaccine.
Then he would ask me to say whether I agreed or disagreed with each,” he recalled.

That line of questioning went on for four hours.

“After the deposition was over, I told that lawyer, ‘I think this is the biggest abuse of process I have ever seen and the most ridiculous hearing I’ve ever been involved in.’ The PDR is the PDR, and it says what it says, and we all read it. But to read a list of potential adverse reactions to vaccines, implying that they should not be given, is both preposterous and a waste of everyone’s time.
