Lawyers vs. NIN's Managers
Highest Court Court of Appeals of Ohio
Year Ended 2009
Plaintiffs Lawyer(s)
Defendants Malm, John (Jr.)
Music Manager(s)
Other Nine Inch Nails
Short Description After losing his earlier lawsuit against Nine Inch Nails' (NIN) lead singer Trent Reznor, former manager John Malm apparently failed to pay his attorneys properly, giving rise to this action in breach of contract and unjust enrichment. This opinion addresses the question of whether, by voluntarily testifying as to communications made with his attorneys during depositions and trial, Malm had voluntarily waived the attorney-client privilege regarding such communications between he and his attorneys. Despite Malm's arguments otherwise, the court held that his testimonies were voluntary and thus waived the privilege. In this lawsuit, Malm cannot claim a privilege he'd previously waived, and thus Plaintiffs' motion to compel communications were granted. - LSW
