Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decides Illinois case on attorney-client privilege

In re: Whirlpool Corp. is a petition for mandamus from the ND Illinois. The panel is Easterbrook, Wood and Evans. The Per Curiam opinion is 4-pages. Worth reading. The gist:

The Supreme Court held in Mohawk that rulings that allegedly infringe upon the attorney-client privilege are not appealable as collateral orders. Id., 130 S. Ct. at 609. Consequently, as the parties acknowledge, Whirlpool’s appeal must be dismissed for lack of jurisdiction.
