Update (5th December 2006)
1. The Judgement on the privilege issue motion was delivered today by Judge Smyth.
2. He ruled that the Plaintiff had not lost its legal professional privilege in the “attendance note”. His written judgement will become available later.
3. This is a finding in favour of the Plaintiff and means the defendants cannot use or refer to the “attendance docket” at the hearing of the action (if any), or the counterclaims.
