Civil liability for “inhumane” deposition questioning?

The Legal Reader reports on a new lawsuit has been filed against an attorney in New Jersey. The attorney, in a prior medical malpractice case is accused of asking an “inhumane” question: asking a husband whether he felt his wife had played a role in the death of their infant daughter by handling the child roughly. I don’t know the law in New Jersey, but here in California, such a lawsuit would be subject to a special motion to strike under California’s anti-SLAPP law and would likely be dismissed very quickly.
