Refusing questing during deposition

Dear Learned Lawyers,

In a civil suit trial, during the cross-examination, can the defendant refuse to answer the question asked by the plaintiff’s lawyer which is irrelevant to the suit ?

Thanks & Regards

Yes.     He can refuse.    It's better if the Court doesn't allow such a question.

Defendant can not refuse he is bound to answer the question. You may point out to the court that it is irrelevant to the case.

Dear Sir

The question is irrelevant.      No doubt about it.      The query is whether an irrelevant question can be refused.    The only answer is: can be.

Defendent can refuse to answer the questions which are irrelevant. However it is the court which will decide which is relevant and irrelevant.
