 Privilege_PeterWatkins
In case this theme appears exaggerated, it is important to keep in mind that it was set in the ‘swinging Britain’ of the 1960s, and was prescient of the way that Popular Culture and the media in the US commercialized the anti-war and counter-culture movement in that country as well.
Filming: ‘Privilege’ was filmed in Birmingham and London in August and September 1966, with a mixed amateur and professional cast, including pop singer Paul Jones, and model Jean Shrimpton.
At least one scene from Privilege appears to have been directly copied and used in Stanley Kubrick’s ‘Clockwork Orange’.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Privilege
A privilege as being a concession of the ruler is understood generously, especially when it runs counter to no law; in as far as it derogates from the law, particularly if it interferes with the rights of a third party, it is interpreted strictly.
Privileges cease by the act of the legislator, the act of the grantees, or spontaneously.
The grantees may terminate the privilege: first, by an express renunciation accepted by the superior; provided however that it is the case of a personal privilege; for privileges of general interest, like those of the clergy, may not be renounced.

 CITES BY TOPIC: privilege   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Privilege is the general term applied to certain rules of law by which particular circumstances justify conduct which otherwise would be tortious, and thereby defeat the tort liability (or defense) which, in the absence of such circumstances, ordinarily would follow from that conduct.
Privileges thus differ form other defenses, such as contributory negligence, which operate to bar plaintiff's recover but do not negate the tortious nature of defendant's conduct.
Privilege may be divided into two general categories: (1) consent, and (2) privileges created by law irrespective of consent.

 ALRC Dicussion Paper 69: Review of the Uniform Evidence Acts - 13. Privilege
The privilege is commonly described as legal professional privilege, which is unfortunate, because it suggests that the privilege is that of the members of the legal profession, which it is not.
If privilege were denied to a copy of an unprivileged document when the copy is produced solely for the purpose of seeking advice from a solicitor or counsel or for the purpose of use in pending, intended or reasonably apprehended litigation there would be a risk that the confidentiality of solicitor–client communications would be breached.
Waiver of the privilege is implied or imputed where it is considered that particular conduct is inconsistent with the maintenance of the confidentiality that the privilege is intended to protect.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Sabbatine Privilege
The Sabbatine privilege thus consists essentially in the early liberation from purgatory, through the special intercession and petition of Mary, which she graciously exercises in favour of her devoted servants preferentially -- as we may assume -- on the day consecrated to her, Saturday.
Furthermore, the conditions for the gaining of the privilege are of such a kind as justify a special trust in the assistance of Mary.
It is especially required of all who wish to share in the privilege that they faithfully preserve their chastity, and recite devoutly each day the Little Hours of the Blessed Virgin.

 Attorney-client privilege - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Attorney-client privilege is a legal concept that protects communications between a client and his or her attorney and keeps those communications confidential.
The attorney-client privilege is separate from and should not be confused with the work-product doctrine.
Other limits to the privilege may apply depending on the situation being adjudicated; for instance, the crime-fraud exception can render the privilege moot when communications between an attorney and client are themselves used to further a crime or fraud.

 EMAIL, PRIVILEGE, CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION
To be privileged, information conveyed to a lawyer must be communicated in confidence, and not in the presence of third parties.
A communication must be “confidential” for the attorney-client privilege to attach, but once the privilege has attached it can be waived either by intentional acts of the client or through inadvertent disclosure.
  The factors to be considered in determining whether the circumstances of an inadvertent disclosure warrant waiver of the attorney‑client privilege are: (1) the reasonableness of the precautions taken to prevent inadvertent disclosure; (2) time taken to rectify the error; (3) scope of discovery; (4) extent of disclosure; and (5) the overriding issue of fairness.

 WhitePrivilege.com » Defining “White Privilege”
display of white privilege, a social expression of a white person or persons demanding to be treated as a member or members of the socially privileged class.
To invest white persons with a privilege or privileges; to grant to white persons a particular right or immunity; to benefit or favor specially white persons; to invest white persons with special honorable distinctions.
To sum up, (1) white privilege should be defined carefully because it is contested; (2) that contestation is itself racialized, (3) which is what we should expect, since (4) socially invisible structures of oppression are more effective and enduring than socially visible ones.

 FindLaw's Writ -- Dean: ACLU v. National Security Agency Why the "State Secrets Privilege" Shouldn't Stop the Lawsuit ...
Because this is a case where the "state secrets" privilege plainly should not apply, and a case with a judge brave enough to rule that, in fact, it does not.
As one commentator nicely states it, the state secrets privilege was "born with a lie on its lips." When the government says "national security," the federal courts seem to cower.
But the paradox of the state secrets privilege is that the government can invoke it without saying exactly why, and many federal judges -- and, as noted, government attorneys -- have met this invocation with deference, mindful of the constitutional separation of powers.

 Robert W. Jensen--White Privilege
That statement, I suggested to him, reveals the ultimate white privilege: the privilege to acknowledge you have unearned privilege but ignore what it means.
That isn't meant as an insult to anyone, but is a simple observation that white privilege has meant that scores of second-rate white professors have slid through the system because their flaws were overlooked out of solidarity based on race, as well as on gender, class and ideology.
And I was hired for a teaching position at the predominantly white University of Texas, which had a white president, in a college headed by a white dean and in a department with a white chairman that at the time had one non-white tenured professor.

 FindLaw's Writ - Dorf: A Brief History Of Executive Privilege, From George Washington Through Dick Cheney
It is not clear that executive privilege, even if it applies, extends beyond the content of discussions to cover the fact that they occurred at all.
Thus, a claim of privilege by the Vice President could succeed - particularly if GAO were to go beyond its current requests and seek not only the names of people with whom Cheney consulted, but also the content of deliberations.
The D.C. Circuit's speculation as to the breadth of the executive privilege indicates that even if private industry representatives acted as members of the Energy Group, the Group's deliberations may still be privileged, and thus not subject to FACA disclosure.

Privilege: Harvard and the Education of the Ruling Class by Ross Gregory Douthat $17.71
"Privilege" tells us that Harvard (like everywhere else) suffers from grade inflation (limited to the humanities and social societies) and a Great Society urge to broaden and integrate its campus.
It was disappointing to learn that much of a Harvard education consists of hair-splitting and academic trivia, not the solid lessons one would hopefully learn from generalizing major points and trends in history, etc.

 White House loses on privilege, Secret Service testimony - November 9, 1998
In the privilege case, the decision means that White House lawyer Bruce Lindsey and other government-paid lawyers must answer a federal grand jury's questions and cannot invoke an attorney-client privilege like President Bill Clinton's personal attorneys.
Starr's office, reacting to the high court's ruling, said the Clinton Administration had "substantially delayed and impeded the grand jury's right to evidence" by invoking various privileges, including the attorney-client claim.
In the Secret Service case, the ruling means people protecting Clinton cannot invoke a so-called "protective function privilege" and refuse to answer grand jury questions.
