This case came to the Fifth District on a “friendly contempt” for failure to comply with a discovery order. The Fifth District held that a breach of fiduciary duty claim put “at issue” a client’s communications with its attorneys because those communications were necessary to determine who contributed to the alleged breach of fiduciary duty and the relative contribution of each.
