Collaboration Props., Inc. v. Polycom, Inc., 224 F.R.D. 473 (N.D. Cal. 2004)

Key Insight: To enable parties to discuss more meaningfully the proper scope of any privilege and correlative redactions, court ordered producing party to show requesting party’s counsel non-redacted emails at meet and confer, reserving producing party’s right to assert any applicable privilege; court noted that process was especially appropriate since producing party had not argued that disclosure would result in unfair advantage to requesting party, but that material was irrelevant and it feared waiving privilege as to future third parties

Nature of Case: Patent infringement

Electronic Data Involved: Privileged emails
