Specter Bill To Alleviate Point 7 of Thompson Memo

It is actually called "The Attorney-Client Privilege Protection Act of 2006," and Ellen Podgor of White Collar Crime Prof here describes, and helpfully links to, the exact bill proposed by Sen. Arlen Specter today.  It is in reply to the forced-waiver uses to which the Thompson Memo has been put by DOJ.

UPDATE:  Here is the Law.com story on Dec. 8 about the bill, or in Legal Times here. [Alan Childress]
