I Promise...

The Florida Supreme Court entered an order yesterday revising the oath sworn by newly-admitted attorneys.

The new part of the oath:

To opposing parties and their counsel, I pledge fairness, integrity, and civility, not only in court, but also in all written and oral communications...

The court adopted the new language "to recognize 'the necessity for civility in the inherently contentious setting of the adversary process.' " (Mike Frisch)
