Confidentiality and Pro Hac Admission Policies Clarified
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court recently entered an order clarifying its policies regarding public access to information concerning bar discipline cases. Proceedings are open unless the issue is attorney disability rather than ethical misconduct. If public charges are dismissed or result in private sanction, the proceedings are then treated as confidential unless the accused attorney wishes the result to remain a matter of public record.
The court also has recently adopted rules to standardize pro hac admissions procedures.(Mike Frisch)
