Erick Sandler wrote an article, "Court Sets Standard for Application of Attorney-Client Privilege to Mixed-Purpose Communications," for The Connecticut Law Tribune. The article examines the Connecticut Supreme Court's decision in Harrington v. Freedom of Information Commission, in which the court established a new standard in Connecticut for applying the attorney-client privilege to communications that involve both legal and nonlegal advice. Sandler writes that the decision should significantly impact litigation of privilege claims, both in terms of its pronouncement of the governing standard and in what it suggests about the appropriate procedures for adjudicating privilege claims.
