Depositions: can a lawyer search a deponent?

Here’s a search string I just got: “defense lawyer searched me at deposition.”

OMG. Did that actually happen?

I’m now sitting here at my keyboard with my mind sparking off in all sorts of directions, trying to imagine how anything like this could have happened.

I don’t have an answer and don’t know where in the massive body of law that governs us to look.

Could this be a civil lawsuit filed by a plaintiff with a dangerous reputation?
