Texas state bar faces new challenge over membership requirement to state bar association

The ABA Journal is reporting that the State Bar of Texas is facing a new lawsuit claiming that it has continued to require lawyers to join and pay dues, despite a recent federal appeals court ruling finding that the practice violated their First Amendment rights.  You can read the ABA Journal article here.  You can read the complaint here.  In it, the plaintiffs allege that the State Bar Association has ignored a ruling of the Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit.  I wrote about that ruling here and the ABA has a story on it here.
