 Under circumstances where the witness is directed by an attorney not to answer a question or line of questions, the attorney asking the questions may, at his or her option, request, where practical, an immediate ruling by a judge or where the obtaining of such a ruling is not practical, may defer that part of the videotape deposition until said ruling may be had. For this purpose, the assigned trial judge may be reached by telephone for ruling. The aforesaid ruling should be immediately reduced to writing or placed on the videotape at the option of the attorneys by a stipulation which sets forth the question, the ruling and the name of a judge and the stipulation should be forthwith filed of record.

By the Court
