New KY Court Conduct Rules
By Carrie Pond
Frankfort, KY – A new Kentucky Supreme Court rule is requiring lawyers to snitch on judges and fellow attorneys for alleged misconduct. The newly approved rule is part of the first revisions to the Supreme Court's rules of conduct in about 20 years. The rules take effect July 15. Chief Justice John D. Minton Jr. says the new rules bring Kentucky in line with national attorney conduct standards. The new misconduct rule requires attorneys to report any misconduct to the state bar association. Two Kentucky attorneys were recently convicted of scamming clients out of more than 94 million dollars in a diet drug case. Their sentencing is scheduled for this summer.
