Abstract : There is growing public concern over the effects of polluting the environment. The Army, like private corporations, has responded to this concern by initiating an audit to evaluate the environmental hazards at its facilities. This audit benefits society and satisfies the public policy that encourages self- policing. Also, the audit can result in civil and criminal liability. A self-evaluative privilege should protect the results of this audit from disclosure.
