D.C. Adopts Screening To Avoid Imputed Disqualification
The Legal Profession blog is reporting that the District of Columbia Court of Appeals has amended its Rules of Professional Conduct to permit screening to avoid imputed disqualification under Rule 1.10. You can find the language of the new rule in the Legal Profession blog here. I never been a fan of the concept of screening, but that is a lost battle these days since the ABA adopted it for its Model Rules.
