The relator asks that the court vacate the trial court's ruling denying Waste Management's motion for protection of communications between its outside counsel and a former employee and to enter an order granting the motion. Waste Management made a prima facie showing that the communication was confidential, was made for the purpose of facilitating the rendition of legal services to Waste Management, and was between a representative of Waste Management and Waste Management's lawyer. The petition for writ of mandamus is conditionally granted. Houston's 14th Court of Appeals, No. 14-12-00456-CV, 11-02-2012.
