If you didn’t get it in the mail already, you should soon be receiving the September issue of Nevada Lawyer dealing with ethics. The issue includes articles on integrity from Bar Counsel Dan Hooge; unlawful solicitation by Matthew Hoffman; lawyer advertising by Sheila Van Duyne; ghost lawyering by Neha Kalra (including CLE); lawyer liars by Randolph M. Fiedler and Sarah M. Molleck; and, how to increase your billable hours without getting disbarred or sued by Phil Aurbach. Which of these articles did you learn the most from? Anything to add?
The RJ has articles on the formation of a task force to study how often traffic tickets are reduced to parking violations and @JudgeJoeHardy ruling that the Nevada Board of Pharmacy’s classification of marijuana as a schedule 1 drug is unconstitutional.
Finally, the District of Nevada sent out the following press release:
SCAM ALERT – Federal Courts do not phone or email individuals requesting money to avoid arrest. In various parts of the United States, including Nevada, citizens are being targeted by phone calls and emails threatening them with prosecution for failing to pay a bond or failing to appear for a hearing or jury service. In the calls and emails, recipients may be pressured to provide confidential data, potentially leading to identity theft and fraud. The recipients may be pressured to provide some sort of immediate payment to the caller. These calls and emails are fraudulent and are not connected with the U.S. Courts. If you receive such a call, it is not a legitimate call from the U.S. District Court. The court does not require anyone to provide sensitive information or money over the phone or email.
