More on the McNulty Memo

So far the McNulty Memo has not fared well in the public comments. Many still criticize the DOJ for failing to recognize the importance of the attorney-client privilege.  Others contend that the memo does not go far enough in that it still allows prosecutors to procure waivers, albeit now with supervisory consent. Finally some object to the designations used by DOJ in deciding when they will allow the attorney client privilege to be waived. Others are upset that the Memo is an exercise of executive power without judicial oversight.  Clearly the Memo fails to address the concerns raised by the ABA in Resolution 302B, a resolution that passed the ABA unanimously.
