Kentucky Supreme Court Dismisses a Count of Consensual Discipline

Ben Cowgill at KentuckyLegalEthics.com has this post on the Kentucky Supreme Court's rejection of a count of impermissible advertising where the attorney had negotiated with the disciplinary counsel and agreed to public reprimand as sanction.  The court looked behind the consent and found that the letter633265_plain_envelope in question was not advertising that violated the bar's ad regulations (it needed no bar screening) and thus it sua sponte rejected the consented-to discipline for that count.  Ben writes:  "The ruling is significant because it is further evidence that the 'new' Supreme Court of Kentucky is examining disciplinary prosecutions closely, even when it receives a case on an unopposed motion for 'consensual discipline.' "  [Alan Childress]
