As we have reported earlier, the Clinic is hard at work in our attempt to get all states bars which have not yet addressed the issue to ethically prohibit the use of release-dismissal agreements.
We are still looking for attorneys barred in the following states that are willing to sign onto our inquiry: Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
If you are barred, or know of someone who is barred, in one of these states and are interested in supporting this project, please contact Clinic member Windy Majer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This map will keep you appraised of just how far reaching this project is. We’ll post an updated version whenever we file in a new state and/or hear from a state in which we have already filed.
