The United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit said: "Mr. Levandowski argues that he is entitled to relief under the Fifth Amendment because production of the unredacted privilege log could potentially incriminate him.
The privilege log is a DOCUMENT.
Since when did the 5TH Amendment apply to Documents or other Tangible written evidence, Ever?
As far as I know, if you commit a crime and write something about it in your private diary, then Yes, the police ARE allowed to use it against you, and you can be prosecuted in court based on this evidence. Hell..... they can even use it against you if you make a note about it on your smartphone and secure it with a passcode. Courts have ordered people to hand over their passcodes.
So why would the guys at Uber think this would go any differently than the well-established standard that once a piece of information is made into a tangible form, whether written to a piece of paper, Or saved to a hard drive, the 5th amendment does not protect the medium from seizure, analysis, and compulsory decryption if necessary to access the info, And the 5th amendment no longer protects the information once recorded?
