  1. JS says:

    Not much is being reported, and it is unclear whether the cops went through the lawyer’s files or simply seized “the letters and shoe box” delivered by the defendant’s wife to his lawyer. If it is the latter, the ruling is not all that surprising (although one would think that the court would have held a hearing first) — you cannot “hide” evidence that the police/DA is otherwise entitled to obtain simply by delivering it to your lawyer. For example, you stab someone — you cannot take the bloody knife to your lawyer so he can keep it from the cops. Until we know more about the contents of the materials seized, it’s hard to say whether the judge screwed the pooch on this one (although, again, it seems the better practice would be to hold a hearing and for the judge to review any questionable materials prior to giving them to the government).
