ORS 221.240
Disclosure to city auditor of legally protected material


As used in this section, “legally protected material” means:


Information and records of a city that are protected by attorney-client privilege held by the city; and


Attorney work product prepared in the course of providing legal services to the city.


The disclosure of legally protected material by a city, or any officer, employee or agent of the city, to the elected auditor of the city, or any employee or agent of the elected auditor who is employed for the purpose of auditing or investigating the city, does not waive the privilege with respect to any other person, to the extent the legally protected material is disclosed for the purpose of an audit or investigation. [2017 c.528 §1]
Note: 221.240 (Disclosure to city auditor of legally protected material) was enacted into law by the Legislative Assembly but was not added to or made a part of ORS chapter 221 or any series therein by legislative action. See Preface to Oregon Revised Statutes for further explanation.
