Supreme Court reviewing cert petition in mandatory bar membership case

In the last couple of years we have seen a number of challenges in different states to mandatory bar membership rules.  I have posted a few stories on the subject here.

Back in June 2020, the US Supreme Court denied review to a case attacking the rule in Wisconsin. The Court had also declined to grant review in cases involving the state bar in North Dakota.

Yet, I just heard that the Court is in the process of deciding whether to review the question based on a constitutional challenge to Oregon’s mandatory bar membership and dues.  

Stay tuned!
