Ergo Licensing, LLC v. Carefusion 303, Inc., 263 F.R.D. 40 (D. Me. 2009)

Key Insight: Court found no waiver of privilege as to 31 pages of inadvertently produced documents (out of 540) where plaintiff took reasonable precautions to prevent the disclosure, including conducting a multi-part privilege review, and where plaintiff acted promptly to rectify the inadvertent production as soon as it became aware of it; in so holding, court rejected defendant?s assertions that plaintiff?s failure to ?independently recognize? the error in production had bearing on the issue and that fairness weighed in favor of waiver where the documents directly supported its defense

Nature of Case: Patent ligitation
