ACC Files Amicus in Support of Attorney-Client Privilege in the Supreme Court of Texas

In October, in conjunction with the International Association of Defense Counsel, ACC filed an amicus brief in the Supreme Court of Texas, arguing against the creation of an exception to the attorney-client privilege for communications with employee experts. In In Re: City of Dickerson v. Texas Windstorm Insurance Association (TWIA), the Court’s decision addresses the use of a TWIA employee as an expert witness and the city’s assertion that the use of an employee as an expert waives attorney-client privilege over communications with that employee. In its brief, ACC argues that although the Court may compel work product related to expert witness testimony under the Texas rules of civil procedure, it should not violate attorney-client privilege.
