November 24, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, RESPONDENT,
FERNANDO LOPEZ-CUEVAS, MOVANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows United States Magistrate Judge
On November 23, 2009, respondent filed a motion for an order finding a waiver of attorney client privilege and to require disclosures from prior counsel. Generally, when a defendant attacks the actions or inaction of his trial counsel in a § 2255 motion, any attorney-client privilege is waived with respect to information pertinent to the allegations. Movant (Lopez-Cuevas) is ordered to file a response to the request for the waiver of attorney client privilege.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that within fourteen days of the date of this order, movant shall file a response to respondent's motion for a waiver of attorney client privilege.
