Work Products

BOSTON — The work product doctrine applies to documents the Massachusetts attorney general demanded from Facebook relating to an investigation into whether the social media company “misrepresented the extent to which it protected or misused user data,” the state’s highest court ruled. However, the AG has shown a “substantial need” for the documents that constitute fact work product.

The case is remanded to determine whether some of the documents requested are opinion work products.
