Lawyers make mistakes, too

“Manafort’s Lawyers Reveal New Details of His Links to Kiev Associate,” The Wall Street Journal, January 9, 2019.  Lawyers attempt to “block out” part of a document (called “redact” in the trade), but some parts they attempted to keep from public disclosure showed up in the version in the court docket.

If you have a duty to your client to redact certain information, what controls do you have in place to make sure the redaction is effective?  Is that Governance?
