Evidence Code Changes Required by Electronic Communications - Study K-500
The Law Revision Commission recommended revision of evid Code provisions
to make clear that (1) a privileged communication does not lose its privileged status simply
because it is transmitted electronically, and (2) the statutory presumption of confidentiality
and statutory waiver requirements apply to newly created privileges. Evid. Code §§
912, 917, 952.
The Commission's recommendation was enacted by the Legislature. See below.
