Judge Finds Documents Inadvertently Disclosed To DOJ Remain Privileged
Mealey's (February 10, 2016, 1:22 PM EST) -- PITTSBURGH — Even though an antitrust defendant inadvertently disclosed hundreds of documents to the U.S. Department of Justice in prior proceedings, a Pennsylvania federal judge on Feb. 8 found that the defendant’s actions to claw back those documents permitted it to maintain its asserted attorney-client privilege, denying a motion to compel the documents (Cole’s Wexford Hotel Inc., et al. v. UPMC, et al. No. 2:10-cv-01609, W.D. Pa.; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 15035).
