Cleary's Revised Letter To The Attorney General
The tone change in Mr. Lewis Liman's missives seems to correlate 0.999 with BofA/ML's desire to (not) cooperate with however many investigations the firm is mired in at any given moment.
"Because Bank of America has decided to reconsider its position with respect to your investigation, it will also produce privileged information to federal regulators and to the Congress... We are proceeding as quickly as possible so that we can waive the privilege in connection with your investigation and also promptly be in a position to produce privileged information to the others who have requested it. We presently hope and expect to be able to effect the waiver, both with respect to your Office and others, no later than Friday, October 16, 2009. While we regret the brief delay, the need for a fair and orderly process in connection with the waiver of the privilege with respect to multiple parties in unavoidable."
