Highlight

This Court’s authority to issue supervisory writs is discretionary and is used only to rectify errors and prevent injustice in extraordinary cases where no adequate alternative remedy exists.

Whether the attorney-client privilege is waived depends on the circumstances of each case.

The discovery rules relating to work product do not apply to discovery of an expert’s information.

Disclosing a client or client representative as an expert witness is not a per se waiver of any privileges.
