Innocence Disclosure Rule Proposed In D.C.
The District of Columbia Bar has posted a notice for comments on proposed revisions to the D.C. Rules of Professional Conduct.
One of the proposals is for a new rule (designated as Rule 8.6):
Adopt a new Rule 8.6 to require lawyers in the District of Columbia who possess information that raises a substantial question about the innocence of a convicted person to disclose that information to a court, the convicted person’s counsel, and the convicted person, in the absence of other confidentiality obligations of the lawyer.
