Air-Ride, Inc. v. DHL Express (USA), Inc., 2008 WL 4766832 (Ohio Ct. App. Nov. 3, 2008)

Key Insight: Appellate court upheld waiver of privilege despite inadvertent production where defendant previously testified as to the subject of the email in affidavit, where the email was marked ?confidential,? indicating it had been reviewed by an attorney prior to production, where defendant learned of the disclosure from plaintiff and waited 2 weeks to seek judicial intervention, where the entirety of the email was produced rather than a part, and where its contents were ?at the heart of the matter? such that fairness mandated a finding of waiver

Nature of Case: Breach of contract
