DP Pham v. Cheadle

(California Court of Appeal) – In an action brought by an estate administrator seeking to disqualify counsel of a party, contending disqualification was required because counsel at issue improperly obtained copies of privileged communications between estate principal and his attorney and used those communications to oppose another party’s summary adjudication motion in this case, the trial court’s denial of motion to disqualify is reversed and remanded to determine whether the receipt and use of the privileged communications by counsel warrants disqualification.
