ADT Appeal Panel decision upholds legal professional privilege
The Appeal Panel in Saggers v Attorney General’s Department (2006) NSWADTAP 11 has dismissed an appeal by the FOI applicant against a finding that documents were exempt under the legal professional privilege exemption. This is another case involving a request for documents concerning the sale of the Sydney Markets. The decision turns on the particular circumstances of the case and involves few findings of general significance.
