CNN Story on Attorney Advertising Changes in Louisiana, Missouri, New Mexico, etc.

Here is a link to an interesting CNN.com story on attorney advertising and new bar regulations, in Louisiana and other states.  "The rules prevent  Louisiana lawyers from promising 'results' or referring to 'past successes.' They also can't use nicknames or mottos that imply an ability to get results." In:  screening of ads by a bar committee. Out: "Losing is not an option."

Our earlier story on the Louisiana rules and a lawsuit challenging them is here.  And in July, Mike linked all the new La. rules here
