Interesting Court Case

An interesting case in San Diego is being reported on by the Voice of San Diego, an on-line newspaper with top credentials.
It seems that a San Diego attorney, known and well-recognized for representing marijuana industry individuals and dispensaries, MAY have participated in a criminal coverup — an attorney who participates in criminal activity breeches the veil of attorney-client privilege! 

A judge has already ruled that the e-mail she sent to her client MAY be evidence of such 

a covering up criminal evidence in a police raid.

It is a shock to the attorney community, just see a fellow attorney in the dock, and they are afraid of the solid attorney client privilege being weakened. 

It should happen more often. I suspect many attorneys illegally assist their clients in cover-ups, then hide behind client-privilege.
