A CEO's foul-mouthed deposition could cost him and his lawyer $29,323 for making a "spectacular failure" of legal proceedings, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "I've never seen anything like this" in 30 years, said a judge of Aaron Wider dropping 73 F-bombs in 12 hours. Wider and his counsel, who split ways on court order, are appealing.
When asked what his company's initials—HTFC—stood for, Wider answered, "Hit that [bleeping] clown." (It's High Tech Financial Corp.) Wider—who faces breach-of-contract charges for selling unsecured home loans—considers using the F-word his "constitutional right," and his fight for free speech is now an online hit dubbed the "The Deposition from Heck."
