Attorney Billing Records In Gay Marriage Case Should Be Unsealed, Tennessee Says
Mealey's (January 13, 2016, 9:41 AM EST) -- NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Citing public interest, Tennessee’s governor and other officials, who were defendants in one of the cases that led to the U.S. Supreme Court’s gay marriage ruling in June 2015, on Jan. 8 moved to unseal the plaintiffs’ counsel’s time entries, asserting that they are protected by neither attorney-client privilege nor the work product doctrine (Valeria Tanco, et al. v. William Edward “Bill” Haslam, et al., No. 3:13-cv-01159, M.D. Tenn.).
