In the recent decision in Salberg v. Genworth Financial, the Delaware Court of Chancery declined to compel the production of attorney-client privileged documents in a books-and-records action. In Salberg, Vice Chancellor Joseph R. Slights III was confronted with an unusual set of facts which culminated with a trial on the narrow issue of whether Genworth would be required to produce otherwise attorney-client privileged information under the Garner fiduciary exception.

Ultimately, the court held that the plaintiffs failed to demonstrate the “good cause” necessary to satisfy the Garner test.
