Attorney-client privilege in the news.
Recent events in the news have called attention to the meaning of the attorney-client privilege. On April 9, a federal magistrate judge issued a search warrant allowing the FBI to raid offices of attorney Michael Cohen and seize records including attorney-client communications. Mr. Cohen is the personal attorney of President Trump. Questions have since arisen as to whether there has been a violation of the attorney-client privilege in this case. Attorneys on both sides continue to argue about what information seized in the raid will be covered by the privilege and what information, if any, can be disclosed to the court, opposing counsel, and the public.
