The insurance broker representing Century 21 Department Stores in its efforts to regain compensation for millions in damages it sustained to its lower Manhattan store following the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks has won a partial attempt to force the insurer overseeing the claim to produce documents it said were privileged.

Southern District of New York Judge Robert W. Sweet, in OneBeacon Insurance Co. v. Forman International, 04 Civ. 2271, held that OneBeacon Insurance Co. and its attorneys at Cozen O’Connor failed to prove that the attorney-client or work product privileges should be applied in connection with the documents in dispute.
