Rocker ordered to turn over 1,000-plus e-mails in suit
Friday, April 29, 2011

By Joe Dwinell
Boston Herald

An Appeals Court justice has backed a decision issued by Superior Court Judge John C. Cratsley ordering rocker Tom Scholz, the founder of the band Boston, to turn over more than 1,000 e-mails to and from his "business team."

Under that order, issued by Cratsley in January, Scholz was required to produce e-mails to and from his publicist, manager, wife and others whom he claimed were his "advisers" that he had withheld as "privileged" as part of his lawsuit against the Herald.

Cratsley is presiding over the case.

Scholz's legal team fought against the release of the e-mails — including appealing the decision to a single justice of the state Appeals Court.

Scholz's lawyers argued to the Appeals Court that the Herald "painfully" misunderstood the law and that their client could shield communications, including e-mails, sent or received by non-employees whom he characterized as part of his "business team."

However, state Appeals Court Justice Cynthia J. Cohen disagreed, ruling that "the judge committed no legal error or abuse of discretion in ruling that the privilege did not apply" and that the e-mails had to be turned over by Scholz to the Herald's lawyers.

Cohen ruled Wednesday that the requirements of the attorney-client privilege were not met by Scholz.

We'll Never Forget You, Brad

I can't believe it's been four years since Brad Delp died.

I remember the day like it was yesterday, when I first heard the news that Brad was gone, I couldn't believe it - in fact I didn't believe it right away, not until I read a news article from a major news organization. Once I was forced to accept that this was real, I spent hours going through all the news channels on TV, looking for articles online, anything that had more information as to what happened. Then when it was revealed that he took his own life, I was in utter shock. I, like many others had no idea of the depression Brad felt or any problems he was having in his life.

Many try to point the finger, find a reason why this happened. I don't think there is one thing that pushed Brad to that point and I don't think we'll ever truly understand, even with the recent article The Boston Globe wrote, or the emails that have surfaced. Even if we could find an answer, it doesn't change what happened, doesn't change what the world lost on that day.

The Brad Delp Foundation was created by his friends and family to carry on the legacy of giving and kindness of Brad.

Let's take the time to remember the man, remember the voice. Listen to any recordings you have with Brad and celebrate the life of Brad. Please share any stories or memories you have of Brad in the comments.
