After presenting a general discussion of the attorney-client privilege, this casenote will discuss the facts underlying Weintraub and then review the rationales of the Seventh Circuit and the Supreme Court in their respective holdings. This casenote will discuss other arguments which have been raised in support of the trustee's authority over the privilege. The casenote will conclude with a discussion of other policy and precedent arguments which urge that the trustee should not be given this authority.
