The McNulty memo, issued last month by Deputy U.S. Attorney General Paul McNulty as a revision of Justice Department guidelines for corporate attorney-client privilege waivers, seems to be garnering as much criticism as its predecessor. Critics say it merely recasts the former policy into a "don't ask, don't tell" version with little change in the pressures on companies. McNulty says he supports the idea of limited waivers, but the new Congress may not be satisfied with less than a ban on waiver demands.
