In re Freeway Foods of Greensboro, Inc.(Case No. 10-11282) (AP No. 10-02057)
Because Defendant reasonably believed that its attorney was a properly-licensed attorney and that its communications with him were privileged, the attorney-client relation existed at the time of the communications at issue. All the elements of the attorney-client privilege were present with respect to the communications and Defendant was within its rights in refusing to respond to Plaintiff’s inquiries about them.
