BLOCK
friend or family member would clearly
shatter the privilege. While an attorney's emailed advice to the board
and to the association's manager, as
an agent of the board, would be protected, some attorneys caution that an
email discussion of that advice among
board members may not be, if a court
construes the privilege narrowly to
apply only to direct communications
between attorneys and their clients.
A board could certainly argue, and
I would argue for it, that board members should be able to discuss legal
advice they have received without
violating the privilege. But that is not
a battle any board wants to fight. The
safest course, without question, is
to avoid using email to discuss legal
matters or any other sensitive or potentially sensitive information.
Some condo association boards
(none of which I'm aware in New
England) have taken steps to reduce

email risks, by encrypting messages or by creating special
portals or designated email
addresses through which all
board communications are
channeled.
These measures won't
guarantee that private email
will remain private; they
won't control the "loose lips"
that make indiscreet comments
or share emails inappropriately;
and they won't protect email
communications from discovery
in a legal proceeding. But having all
association-related email communications in one location will make it
easier to produce them, if required
by a discovery order, because they
won't be intermingled with thousands
of other unrelated documents. And
requiring special treatment of association-related email may make board
members think twice about what they

say in these communications and
with whom they share them.
