On May 23, Microsoft and the IRS filed a stipulated motion to resolve some issues of privilege in the pending summons enforcement case captioned United States v. Microsoft (U.S.D.C. W.D. Wash.). Microsoft agreed to allow a quick-peek inspection, under Federal Rules of Evidence 502(d), of certain documents for which Microsoft Corp. had claimed privilege. Under FRE 502(d), the party claiming privilege for the documents may show the documents to the other party without waiving privilege. The summons enforcement action relates to an ongoing audit of two of Microsoft’s cost-sharing agreements.
