New York Advertising Rules Held Unconstitutional

Breaking news from New York: the Second Circuit has announced it is upholding a lower court's ruling that New York’s lawyer advertising rules are unconstitutional (with two exceptions — fictitious law firms and the thirty day moratorium on lawyers contacting accident victims). Interestingly, I have argued before that the rule on the moratorium should have been declared unconstitutional. The opinion is available here.
For comments on the decision you can go to The Legal Ethics Forum, The NY Personal Injury Blog, and Public Citizen's Consumer Law and Policy Blog.
