Privilege

Robert talks with James Duane, a professor of law at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia. They discuss how Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr's pursuit of Vincent Foster's lawyers' notes could affect other professionals who deal with "privileged" communications, such as psychiatrists and priests. Duane says that ultimately, this issue could even affect communications between husbands and wives.
