United States of America, Appellee, v. Milton Silverman, Appellant, 439 F.2d 1198 (2d Cir. 1970)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit - 439 F.2d 1198 (2d Cir. 1970) December 11, 1970

On Petition for Rehearing of 430 F.2d 106.

Paul, Weiss, Goldberg, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, New York City, by Simon H. Rifkind, Edward N. Costikyan and Theodore W. Striggles, New York City, of counsel, for appellant.

Before MOORE, FRIENDLY and HAYS, Circuit Judges.


Appellant's petition for a rehearing suggests that our opinion makes an exception to the attorney-client confidential communication rules. This was not the intent of the opinion. To avoid any such impression, the paragraph of the decision filed July 1, 1970, reported in 430 F.2d at page 122 and reading "The privilege as commonly formulated * * *" and continuing to the paragraph on page 122 (right-hand column) reading "In view of the position * *" in the opinion reported at 430 F.2d 106, is deleted. However, with respect to the Friedland report, we believe that under the circumstances it was properly received in evidence.

We have considered all the other grounds advanced in the petition for rehearing, and deny the petition except as noted above.
