This week’s edition of the legal-affairs podcast Coast to Coast explores the many complex issues involved in the patent litigation between Tivo and Echostar, and in particular the Federal Circuit’s recent order, In re EchoStar Communications, involving attorney-client privilege and the discoverability of attorney work product in patent litigation. Joining my cohost J. Craig Williams and me to discuss this issue are two legal experts, Blair Jacobs, partner at Sutherland Asbill & Brennan LLP , and Christine W.S. Byrd, a litigation partner with Irell & Manella LLP and a member of Tivo’s legal team.
