California Justices Tell State Bar to Redo Proposals for Updating Lawyer Conduct Rules

Posted By Administration, Thursday, October 09, 2014

Oct. 2 — The California Supreme Court has told the state bar to go a different direction in coming up with proposals to update California's lawyer conduct rules.


It took the state bar more than a decade to develop suggestions that were sent to the high court four years ago, and which went nowhere.


In August the bar abruptly changed course and quietly stopped trying to gain the justices' approval of the comprehensive rule revisions.


Now, the bar is going back to the drawing board to develop a new set of proposals under specific marching orders from the supreme court.


In a Sept. 19 letter, the court instructed the bar to try again. It directed the bar to put together a second “Commission to Revise the Rules of Professional Conduct” by Thanksgiving, and to submit its new proposals for the court's final consideration no later than March 31, 2017.


The letter makes plain that the court wants to have plenty of input along the way.
