Ask a lawyer and get answers to your legal questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.
This isn't a situation where there would be any duty of confidentiality. It isn't a relationship like an attorney, doctor or clergy. It is just a request for a recommendation.. So the only thing the person who requested the recommendation could do is simply ask the other person to keep the matter confidential. But the other person wouldn't have any legal duty to do so if they chose not to..
So, no, since there is no duty here, there is no recourse if they don't keep the request to themselves..
I just wanted to touch base with you and check in.
Did you have any further questions I can help with?
