Wow. Just Wow. While I typically agree with Shakespeare on the fate of lawyers I am also typically having alittle fun with the venerable profession. Now comes news that Lawyers blogs are considered ADVERTISING by the Kentucky Attorney’s Advertising Commission. Ben Cowgill’s(related to Brad by chance?) blog on Legal Ethics has been all but shutdown while he argues his, and others, points that this is really a free speech issue. It seems that the KAAC wants to charge Ben $50 for every entry he makes claiming that his “advertising” has changed and the rules require a new filing fee. Thankfully for Ben, they’ve allowed him to continue posting while a final decision is beaten out.
Stay tuned to his blog for details…this may be too much of a complex legal issue for us little people to understand.
