Prolly a good call: CA State Bar bans sex between attorneys and clients

Posted by

CA would join 17 other states with a complete ban.

The State Bar of California approved an ethics rule that would subject lawyers to discipline for having sex with their clients.

California currently bars attorneys from coercing a client into sex or demanding sex in exchange for legal representation.

But voluntary sex between attorneys and clients is not prohibited as long as it does not cause the lawyers to “perform legal services incompetently.”

The new rule would completely ban sex between lawyers and clients with some exceptions
