Koch Foods of Ala., LLC v. Gen. Elec. Capital Corp., 2008 WL 5264672 (11th Cir. Dec. 18, 2008)

Key Insight: Court found no waiver of attorney-client privilege from inadvertent production where the privileged email was found tucked into a 37-page lease agreement contained in a 3,758 page production, where the email was included in the privilege log, and where plaintiff immediately asserted privilege upon learning of its disclosure; court acknowledged Alabama?s lack of controlling authority, but applied a totality-of-the-circumstances test reasoning that ?it would likely be adopted by the Alabama Supreme Court if confronted with the issue.?

Nature of Case: Conversion
