I've been reading the notes for a recent prolific court case, and in the records of what was said the phrase "Object to the form." comes up quite a lot.
What does this phrase mean?
(If it is at all relevant, I believe the law in play is US law, but I do not know where exactly the case is taking place.)
As requested in the comments, here are some examples from the case notes, with names redacted.
A I don't recall.
Q Is it possible?
A It's a possibility.
MR. [REDACTED]: Object to the form.
Q. And, indeed, you would agree with me that if this individual claimed that Ms. [REDACTED] had something to do with the events listed in Narrative 1, you would have folded up on it, as the investigating detective, right?
MS. [REDACTED]: Object to the form.
THE WITNESS: Either myself or Detective [REDACTED] would have.
