NEW YORK - A Second Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals panel on June 27 affirmed a trial court judge's denial of a motion to quash a discovery subpoena served on an investment firm in an underlying legal malpractice suit, holding that the attorney-client privilege argument did not extend to non-attorneys (Richard G. Vento, et al. v. Handler, Thayer & Duggan LLC, et al., No. 12-3899, 2nd Cir.; 2014 U.S. App. LEXIS 12106).
