Nancy Grace - Not Camera Ready for Deposition

1/26/2010 12:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Nancy GraceIt's classic. Nancy Grace does not want her deposition taken because she's afraid someone will manipulate the videotape and take her out of context.

Grace is being sued by the parents of Melinda Duckett, who killed herself -- allegedly after Grace went on the air and suggested the woman might be responsible for the disappearance of her child.

Grace's deposition is scheduled to be taken this Thursday in Atlanta. Grace and CNN have objected to the videotaping of the depo.

In her legal papers, Grace's lawyer says, "The risks associated with releasing deposition videotapes prior to trial are high due to video's unique ability to be abused as they can be cut and splice and used as 'sound bites' and taken wholly out of context."

The papers go on to say there have been threats against Grace and a videotaped deposition "would serve no purpose but to further harass, embarrass and intimidate Ms. Grace and corrupt the jury pool."

Hey HONESTY:

Nancy only says what we all are thinking. Melinda Ducket killed her child and we all know it. She was seen going through a drive thru window with the child and an hour later without it and then she reports him missing. She killed herself because she was guilty. If not she would still be here holding onto hope that the child was still alive. And if you are referring to the new case where the husband killed his wife and took the child... she is guilty too because she knew all about his long rap sheet but couldn't stay away from him. The child's father was fighting to keep that man away from her. Now the mother is dead and he is off molesting the child which is probably what he had planned all along. Ofcourse this is her fault. She was an idiot and put her man before her child.

I use to be a BIG FAN of Nancy's show...but I'm not that much of a loyal viewer anymore.
Has anyone noticed how she is ALWAYS interrupting her guests/attorneys mid way through their comment??? I just find that very rude. If your going to ask them something,,,atleast give them a little respect a let them finsih their comment.
IF she doesn't agree, OH MY GOSH!!! Not only do they get cut off, she then goes on to tell them how dumb they are.
I wish she would stop doing that...I respect alot of what she stands for, but the rudeness is really turning me off the show!

As for her pushing this girl to commit suicide, biotch please! give me a break...IF Nancy had that much "power", TOT mom aka Casey Anthony would have already fessed up!

Glad the family is going after her. She was unbelievably condescending, mean (evil really) and out of line with this young woman. Nancy Graceless fails to appreciate the concept of due process and innocent until proven guilty, which is a travesty for someone who was at one time an officer of the court. She is not judge and jury, although in this case she most certainly contributed to being executioner. She appeals to people's blood lust and desire for revenge--exactly the ugly human qualities our legal system is designed to neutralize because they are dangerous and often misguided. If you watch her and support her 'judgment without benefit of the courts' approach, be prepared to explain the blood on your own hands come real judgment day.

Nancy Grace is a c***!

But everyone knows that b**** Melinda killed herself because she murdered her kid. Disgusting pig parents trying to profit over the fact that their daughter is a baby killer- only in America is this type of litigious nonsense entertained.

If the young mother of the missing boy was so innocent, too bad she didn't stick around and try to find her little boy. Her story stunk and Nancy knew it. Nancy probably crossed the line with her but shouldn't not be held responsible for her suicide.

STFU Pongo

You don't even make any sense. Melinda was a suspect in her son's disappearance-so does that mean the parents can also sue the Police Department.

I bet you are the type of guy who wants to have conjugal visits with Casey Anthony.

If and when we get back to Proven Innocent OR Guilty by a Court of Law by Jury. Not by the Court of Public Opinion. It is about Sensationalizing there on ratings!!! Said part about it this has been going on since OJ'S Trail. To me it fails underneath the category of tainted evidence--All should be releashed. Has for NG--she made the mistake when we have the video already how she dehumanized Melinda on National TV. Why have a deposition--when there is already a video of her and her actions. Save the money and lets convict her already. As, a mother I do everything humanally possible to protect my angels--Not putting them on air. So, where GA on her publizing her babies. Also, lets go after her producers to. L.O.V.E

YEAH! turn about is fair play and KARMA is a major B*i*t*ch...She does just what she CLAIMS will happen to her dispo. tape. Manipulation! I have been in Law Enforcement for 22 years and I can tell you HER type does not serve any purpose but to put money in HER bank account and make a mockery of our justice system. You are INNOCENT till PROVEN guilty...Mrs. Grace convicts those in her sights with a sense of "MOB JUSTICE"! She Claims to have been an officer of the court, yet shows no concern for her wild claims and often mocks Law Enforcement officers who stand up for the CONSTITUTION! It cuts both ways my dear!!! It is called credibility and she has none!

Nancy Grace is a self-righteous bully who deems herself to be both judge and jury.
But, is she wholly to blame for this suicide?
That is doubtful, but she was probably a contributing factor.

I hope she gets her head handed to her. That is the most hateful bitch on this planet. Her day is coming. You can say and do the things she does to other people and not have it come back on you
