If anyone has any objection briefs to add, please do.

I do "incomplete hypothetical" as HOIP.
"Calls for speculation" as KAUPZ
"Calls for a legal conclusion" as KAULZ
"Beyond the scope" as BOEP
"Assumes facts not in evidence" as SMAZ
"Lack of foundation" as LOEF
"Lacks foundation" as LOEX
"Object to form" as BOERM

Anyone else have any to add?

Not calculated to lead to discoverable evidence = N-KD

I LOVE THIS BRIEF.  For some reason, my brain and my hands just can't communicate when this phrase comes up.  Thanks for sharing.

I like that.  I'm going to use it.  But I think I usually hear the one "not calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence"?  Maybe NAKD?  

These are great. Thanks everyone. Please keep them coming.

Wow, Keith. I'm impressed.
Okay, I'm editing a horrendous objection-filled depo and thought I'd share some new ones I came up with on the fly at the depo. I already brief almost all the objections, but this atty was so fast, that I had to incorporate even more:

OBS ~ Objection. Vague and ambiguous.
OFBGS ~ Objection. Calls for speculation.
VAEUBT ~ Vague and ambiguous as to time. (I already do VAEUBS for vague and ambiguous.)

Never heard these two before, but the atty loved them:
Impermissible form of a leading question ~ PERD
Impermissible form of a leading question without proper foundation ~ PERTD

I think there were others, but that's what I'm running across now and thought I'd share ~ plus, I like to procastinate working on this one ~ it gives me a headache ~ and it's an expedite, of course!
