SEC alleged for keeping secret handwritten documents in Cendant Case

Walter Forbes, former chairman of Cendant Corp, is imprisoned for 12-year in a fraud conspiracy case. The law firm Williams & Connolly wants a federal appeals court in Washington to force securities regulators to turn over documents based in the investigation of Cendant Corp. The commission argues that the attorney work-product privilege protects the documents from disclosure. A federal trial judge in Washington rejected a Freedom of Information Act request in August 2010.

In response to this, the SEC has created more than 2,400 pages of non-exempt records through the firm’s public records request.
