Proposed | amendments to Paragraph 13-13 regarding Participation and Disqualification of Counsel (pending review by the Supreme Court of Virginia)
On September 5, 2012, the Committee on Lawyer Discipline (COLD) approved proposed amendments to Part 6, Section IV, Paragraph 13-13 of the Rules of the Supreme Court of Virginia, which ease the restrictions involving imputation of conflicts of interest for attorneys representing Respondents in bar disciplinary actions. These revisions will allow more attorneys to participate in the disciplinary system as counsel for Respondents. Following Council review in February, 2013, an additional revision was made to Paragraph 13-13.C.6.a to include appeals from Three Judge Court proceedings. This additional revision was approved by COLD on June 5, 2013, and these proposed amendments were considered by Council in October, 2013.
