This session explored ethical issues arising under public entities’ obligations to provide public record access, including determining who your client is for purposes of the attorney-client privilege and related third-party protection of confidential personal information held by agencies. Discussion also included the potential waiver of any privileges caused by inadvertent PRA-document disclosures and the public attorney’s potential ethical duty to third parties under this circumstance.
