Revisions to the rules proposed in California - Updated

The California State Bar Association has submitted to the Supreme Court 67 proposed new Rules of Professional Conduct.  California is currently the only state whose professional conduct rules are not adapted from the ABA Model Rules, and the new proposals suggest a reorganization and renumbering to align California rules with the Model Rules. The new rules can not take effect unless they are approved by the Supreme Court.  Some of the proposals have been submitted to the court; others will be submitted in the future.  The full text of the proposal is available here.  (Thanks to the Legal Profession Blog for the update.)

UPDATE 8/3/11:  More on the story at the Legal Ethics Forum.
