In Moffatt v. Wazana Brothers International, No. 14-1881 (E.D. Pa. Oct. 24, 2014), the district court held that a non-lawyer’s disclosure of legal advice to corporate employees with a need to know the advice did not waive the attorney-client privilege.  In this employment discrimination matter, plaintiff sought production of a portion of an email that had been redacted by defendant.  The redacted portion was a communication from the company’s CFO to the President and CEO that relayed the advice that corporate counsel provided to the CFO and the Human Relations Manager regarding the termination and severance of plaintiff.   The court held that there was no waiver of privilege: “Courts have consistently held that communications relaying legal advice provided by corporate counsel among non-attorney corporate employees who share responsibility ‘for the subject matter underlying the consultation’ are privileged.”
