Doe v. Old Dominion University

289 F.Supp. 3d 744 (2018)


During discovery, D requested that P produce, among other things, all emails between P (and persons acting on her behalf) and her victim advocate, Laura Dunn. P's privilege log indicates that there are more than one hundred fifty (150) such emails. P objected on the grounds that communications between sexual assault victims and their advocates are privileged. P invoked what is known as the 'the victim-advocate privilege (whether by statute or otherwise, including, but not limited to, Va. Code Ann. § 63.2-104.1)'). D filed the instant Motions to Compel.
