Nancy Grace Hacks, Sneezes Through Deposition

1/28/2010 6:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Nancy Grace Nancy Grace's deposition could make you sick .... if you were sitting in the same room with her.

Grace sat for her deposition in Atlanta today, in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the parents of a woman who killed herself after getting grilled by Grace.

We're told Grace had an epic cold and barely made it through the depo. Various people in the room were bringing her Vicks cough drops, Kleenex and other accoutrement.

Our sources say the depo wasn't groundbreaking ... no smoking gun.

Much to the chagrin of Grace and CNN, the deposition was videotaped but the tape is under wraps.

Can you imagine the Mommy Dearest books that are going to come from Nancy Grace's children? She's a bitchy, vindictive, control freak - that doesn't exactly make for great mothering.

Also, I wonder if she did trial work as a prosecutor or just probation and arraignments, etc. A jury would be massively turned off by her demeanor.

So now my question would be why shouldn't Children Services not be held responsible giving the child back each time???? Knowing what they knew about Melinda who put the child in harm's way??? HOWEVER, with that being said...usually people who commit suicide come out with the truth in their suicide notes because they know they will not be held responsible for their so called actions - Melinda did not say she killed her child but in fact still wanted the search to continue to look for her son. Has this child ever been found??? Where is the proof she killed her son??

Wrong case. You're talking about the case of the murderer being overturned on a technicality, Jonathan Schmitz. He was convicted AGAIN at the second trial. The Jenny Jones verdict of 29.5 million dollars was overturned by the Michigan Court of Appeals when it ruled the Jenny Jones show was not LEGALLY RESPONSIBLE for the death of Scott Amadore. The man that pulled the trigger is the only one responsible.

Jenny Jones damage award overturned

DETROIT, Oct 23, 2002 (United Press International via COMTEX) -- The Michigan Court of Appeals Wednesday overturned a $29 million judgment against the producers of the "Jenny Jones" show, saying they had no obligation to protect guests from each other.

The 2-1 decision grew out of the case filed against Warner Brothers, the "Jenny Jones" show and Telepictures by the family of Scott Amedure, who was shot to death by Jonathan Schmitz in March 1995 after the two appeared on a never-aired segment of the talk show dealing ...

Legally Bonde    

Yes, Darlene, a young woman awakes one day and says "What a great day to kill myself". Just maybe this is the most effective method to shut up
Nancy Grace "Media Monster" if I take myself out! I'm sure this young woman had NO intention of killing herself until Nancy Grace "sandblasted" her with that BIG LETHAL mouth! Nancy Grace "LETHAL Mouth"!

Legally Blonde, people kill themselves everyday, I dont think they are really thinking straight, NOBODY knows what they are thinking @ the time. I just dont think it fair to put the blame on someone else!
Everyone has a right to thier own opinion, no telling whos right!

I wonder if she can take it as much as she can dish it out.
I don't think so from what I've seen.
I'll bet she is just livid about this, because she has a prideful and vindictive streak.

Why was Nancy Grace afraid of leaks? What leak? Maybe who her sources were?

It's funny that she's been sneezing/coughing all through the deposition, but when she's hosting her damn show, she's fine (besides the hoarse voice). What a drama queen.

i want to say grace needs to take it down a notch. its unpro these girls she picks on arent getting the help from parents they need. they may not be able to hold entry level jobs like yoy did. your daughter will be a young girl too. are you going to treat her the same way if she doesnt measure up? that girl did you a viewing show favor and you treated her like sh it. i wouldnt have talked to you at all. you wouldnt talk to us if you didnt get paid. retire your too old to be a parent anyway.

The cops said Melinda Duckett was the CHIEF suspect and the ONLY supect in this case, and they don't believe Trenton was kidnapped. Nancy knew she was the chief suspect and asked her questions you ask a suspect. She also asked the same questions to Trenton's father, who answered them all, and came back repeatedly on her show.

Melinda HATED her husband/ex-husband Josh so much, she hacked into his My Space account and wrote a threatening email to her, that ended his custody of Trenton. That's how mentally ill and EVIL the woman was.
