"In re Cusumano" and the Undue Burden of Using the Journalist Privilege as a Model for Protecting Researchers from Discovery.
Rapp, Rebecca Emily
Journal of Law and Education, v29 n3 p265-84 Jul 2000
Considers the First Circuit=s decision to extend the journalistic privilege to protect academic researchers who were subpoenaed in the Microsoft litigation. Gives an overview of traditional rules of evidence, discusses previous cases, and outlines the arguments researchers have made to fight subpoenas. Concludes that the research privilege should be based on the concept of academic freedom, rather than on the journalist privilege. (Contains 76 footnotes.) (MLF)
