Dear Friends and Colleagues:
Yesterday, the Goldwater Institute filed a petition asking the Arizona Supreme Court to amend the rules governing the State Bar of Arizona to separate the regulatory and trade association functions along the lines adopted by the Nebraska Supreme Court and comparable to bar reform legislation sponsored by Rep. Anthony Kern in the Arizona Legislature the past few years. In addition, the petition asks for the implementation of heightened financial transparency requirements via a detailed and independent annual audit of the Arizona Bar’s expenditures. A copy of the rule petition is attached. Also see the explanatory links below for additional background.
I urge you to make your comments in support of this new bar reform rules petition via this registration link: https://www.azcourts.gov/rules/Forum-FAQ
Any member of the public is free to make comments.
