ACC Urges Protection of Confidential Business Information in California Supreme Court Amicus Letter

On January 10th, ACC filed a letter brief with the Supreme Court of California supporting the petition for review of a case raising the question of whether a court should sanction an attorney for the mishandling or misuse of non-privileged confidential business information. ACC argues that it is bad policy to allow attorneys to retain this inadvertently produced information because of the increased potential for misuse of this info and related liability issues to corporate clients and its lawyers.

ACC urged the court to accept the case and establish a rule that protects such confidential information during the discovery process.
