What are the most common types of discovery orders. I see that many appellate courts review discovery orders for an absue of discretion, and have applied this standard of review to discovery orders compelling documents that the party claims that the attorney-client privilege protects. However, since whether there has been waiver of the AC priv if usually a question of law, it doesn't make any sense to me that they should apply such a high standard of review for discovery orders involving claims of attorney-client privilege. Are there other discovery orders that are more fact-related than orders denying claims of Ac priv and/or are more common? Thanks for your suggestions.
