Trouble for Dalziel?

National MP Judith Collins is trying to get her done for contempt of court for sharing (or at least commenting on) legally privileged information. It seems that the papers she was relying on as a basis for her character assassination of Takshila's lawyer on monday were lawyer-client communications. Not being a lawyer, I'm not sure how sacred they are or how much trouble Dalziel could be in. I'd certainly like to see her sweat, though.

Interestingly, TV3 claims the papers were deposited in an unmarked envelope on a journalist's desk. One wonders who would benefit by publicising them in this manner. The Immigration Minister, perhaps?
