The Colorado Supreme Court announced a proposed rule change to the Colorado Rules of Evidence. The change would add a new Rule 502, “Attorney-Client Privilege and Work Product; Limitations on Waiver.” The new rule discusses waiver of the attorney-client privilege and work product doctrine as applied to disclosures in Colorado proceedings or Colorado offices or agencies, and in federal proceedings. The rule also discusses inadvertent disclosure and party agreements.
Comments about the new rule may be submitted in writing to Christopher Ryan, clerk of the Supreme Court, via email or at 2 East 14th Avenue, Denver, CO 80203. Comments must be received no later than 5 p.m. on March 3, 2016. Written comments will be posted on the State Judicial website after the comment period ends.
