In re Pac. Pictures Corp., 2012 WL 1640627 (9th Cir. 2012)

Although this case did not arise in the employment context, it has implications in labor and employment litigation matters in which a government agency is involved. The question the Ninth Circuit decided is whether a party waives the attorney-client privilege forever by voluntarily disclosing privileged documents to the federal government. The Court answered this question in the affirmative.
