The notice states that the communication may contain privileged information for the intended recipient, and that disclosure "by others" is prohibited.

Since Jonlevy was the intended recipient, I think this means he is free to disclose it's contents. Others cannot disclose it without his permission. Read the notice more carefully.

Reality check dude - if some boilerplate scares you; how you going to take on the DA's officer or file a civil rights lawsuit for a client?  Get out there and read some Gerry Spence or Tony Serra:

Bingo, you win the prize.

This the one I use on my emails:

This e-mail is confidential. If you are not the intended recipient then you must not copy it, forward it, use it for any purpose, or disclose it to another person. Instead please return it to the sender immediately. Please then delete your copy from your system.

Sorry what is your point?  Am I supposed to be afraid of the California Bar Admissions Committee for asking them on the record about Novus?   I think they are a great agency, they literally answered me the same day.  I can't say the same for the CIA; they forced me to sue them to get records.

Do whatever you want, but if the place that gives you a license says "don't do this" I am not going to do it. I don't care if it makes any sense, bringing a passport photo to the MPRE makes ZERO sense, but they say jump so I jump.

I am trying to educate you - that is not what their boilerplate says.  If you aspire to be a lawyer, you need to think like one.

sigh, whatever man. If my boss says "don't do this" I am not going to argue with him that he didn't really mean it or that he couldn't enforce it if he did.

1.  They didn't tell me, the recipient, not to disclose the email.

2.  There is nothing confidential in the email.

3.  It is public information.

You need to be able to distinguish between privileged and confidential material and information that is not if you want to be a lawyer.
