Waiver of Attorney-Client Privilege in Bad Faith Litigation (SC)

The United States District Court has confirmed in a recent decision that in most circumstances, the attorney-client privilege will be waived in bad faith litigation in South Carolina. In Contravest, Inc. v. Mt. Hawley Ins. Co., the district court was asked to determine whether the insurance company in a bad faith action had waived the attorney-client privilege relative to certain documents and materials sought in discovery. The district court found that it did waive the privilege.
