Cal. Supreme Court to Review Attorney Work Product Issue

Thank you to Kimberly Kralowec of the UCL Practitioner for noting that the Supreme Court has granted review in Coito v. Superior Court (State of California. The Court of Appeal in Coito held:
written and recorded witness statements, including not only those produced by the witness and turned over to counsel but also those taken by counsel, are not attorney work product. Because such statements are not work product, neither is a list of witnesses from whom statements have been obtained (the list requested by form interrogatory No. 12.3).
Our post on the Court of Appeal's decision is here, and the Supreme Court's case summary page is here. Although Coito is not a wage and hour or class action case, we deal with these issues frequently, and I have added it to my watch list.
