Roth v. Aon

Magistrate's Opinion and Order in Roth v. Aon


Magistrate Judge Morton Denlow of the US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois ruled that Aon was not required to produce an email seeking comments on draft disclosure language for Aon’s Form 10-K because it was protected by the attorney-client privilege. Judge Denlow recognized that the process of preparing SEC filings involves pervasive legal judgments throughout, even where the disclosure in question concerns operational rather than legal matters.
