S & A Painting Co. v. O.W.B. Corp.

United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania
103 F.R.D. 407 (W.D. Pa. 1984)


S & A Painting Co. (S & A) (plaintiff) brought suit against O.W.B. Corp. and Transamerica Insurance Co. (defendants) for breach of contract. At the deposition of Nick Frangopoulos, president of S & A, Frangopoulos referred to portions of handwritten notes to refresh his memory. He prepared the notes at the request of his counsel. The defendants filed a motion to compel production of all of Frangopoulos’s notes, even those not referred to in the deposition, pursuant to Rule 612 of the Federal Rules of Evidence. S & A contends that the attorney-client privilege protects the notes from disclosure.
