More Transparency In Illinois
Last week, I commented that the web page of the North Carolina State Bar was the only place where an attorney's answer to disciplinary charges could be found on line.
Well, that is no longer true.
Now the web page of the Illinois disciplinary system will provide links to answers as well as complaints.
Kudos to Illinois.
Were they reading this blog? I'd like to think so. (Mike Frisch)

The very first thing that I always do in a disciplinary case is to move to unseal the case. At first blush, sealing is supposed to protect the attorney from embarrassment. But actually, what it really does is to protect the disciplinary authorities from oversight. Amazing how many times they have refused or delayed unsealing the case even though unsealing is mandatory.
One really has to conclude that they were reading the blog. Otherwise it would be one hell of a coincidence.
