No Litigation Privilege In Malpractice Claim

The New Jersey Appellate Division has held that the litigation privilege does not apply in a lawsuit filed against a lawyer by a former client alleging legal malpractice.

The court was considering the plaintiff's appeal in a case involving allegation of malpractice in a bankruptcy matter. The case was reversed in part and remanded in light of the holding. (Mike Frisch)
