Federal District judge finds that certain aspects of the Florida rules regarding advertising violate First Amendment
Almost exactly one year ago, I reported on a challenge to the advertising rules in Florida (here). Coincidentally, just a few days ago, the Lawyers Ethics Alerts blog reported that a Federal Southern District Judge issued an opinion (apparently in a different case) granting summary judgment in favor of those challenging the rule (and against the Florida Bar) and enjoining the Bar from enforcing it. The case is Robert Rubenstein v. The Florida Bar. You can read the order/injunction here.
