Vector Products, Inc. v. Schumacher Electric Corp., S.D. Fla., 3/8/2005
Vector Products, Inc. v. Schumacher Electric Corp., S.D. Fla., 3/8/2005. Amicus Curiae filed in support of the appeal filed by Defendant Schumacher Electric Corporation of the Magistrate's Order denying in-house counsel access to documents provided to attorneys in litigation. The ACC respectfully submits if any litigators in a case have access to documents produced to the other side, that access should be available to all litigators in the case who are properly licensed and admitted, and the fact a litigator is in-house should not prevent that counsel from reviewing sensitive or protected information that is available to all other attorneys for the parties. To prevent the access to documents available to other lawyers creates an inherent and unfair disadvantage in preparing, presenting, and directing the execution of the client's strategy.
