TEXAS COURT OF APPEALS, THIRD DISTRICT, AT AUSTIN NO. 03-06-00295-CV In re Abbott Laboratories, Inc. ORIGINAL PROCEEDING FROM TRAVIS COUNTY MEMORANDUM OPINION Abbott Laboratories has filed a petition for a writ of mandamus challenging the portion of the district court s order dated May 18, 2006, compelling production of the documents numbered 21, 26, 40, 43, 45-47, 54, and 62-67 on its privilege log. We have reviewed the documents in camera and we cannot hold that the district court s order was a clear abuse of discretion. See Walker v. Packer, 827 S.W.2d 833, 840 (Tex. 1992). Accordingly, we deny Abbott s petition for a writ of mandamus and lift our stay of the district court s order. Bea Ann Smith, Justice Before Chief Justice Law, Justices B. A. Smith and Puryear Filed: June 21, 2006
