Proposed professional conduct rule changes deferred to April

On November 20, the Judiciary Committee reviewed the two proposals from the Rules of Professional Conduct (RPC) Committee regarding 5.5 and 1.6. (Read about those proposed changes in this earlier post.) The Judiciary Committee passed a recommendation that the Assembly defer action on these proposals until after the January meeting of the Lawyers Professional Responsibility Board. The RPC Committee subsequently requested that the two proposals be pulled from the December Assembly meeting agenda and placed on April’s agenda instead.
