Kandasamy v. Advanced Software Sys. Inc.

Under Virginia’s crime-fraud exception to the attorney-client and work-product privileges, the court will not quash the defendant’s subpoena to the non-party law firm that previously represented the plaintiff before it withdrew as counsel. The defendant presented substantial evidence that emails produced by the plaintiff, which would have been critical evidence of his case-in-chief, had been doctored, which would be a fraud on the court.
Motion to quash denied.

Kandasamy v. Advanced Software Sys. Inc., No. 1:18cv29, Jan. 7, 2019. EDVA at Alexandria (Buchanan).
