Nevada – Attorney-Client Privilege

Wynn Resorts, Limited v. Eighth Judicial District Court of Nevada, 133 Nev. Adv. Rep. 52 (decided 7/27/17).  The Nevada Supreme Court held that by attaching a copy of an investigative report to its complaint and to an SEC filing, a corporation waived the attorney-client privilege as to the documents underlying the report.  However it did not waive the privilege as to legal advice it received by asserting the business judgment rule as a defense to a counterclaim.
