Partner Glenn R. Reiser Quoted in NJ Law Journal on Ethics Reform

The New Jersey State Bar Association is recommending a change to New Jersey Rule of Professional ConductNJ RPC 8.4(g) 8.4(g) that deems it professional misconduct for a lawyer to commit acts of discrimination while engaged in the capacity of practicing law.  The proposed amendment would adopt the current ABA Model Rule of Professional Conduct 8.4(g) which also incorporates ‘harassment’ within the definition of professional misconduct. In addition, the proposed amendment would eliminate New Jersey’s current exception for discrimination in the work place.

Partner Glenn R. Reiser is extensively quoted in an article published in the New Jersey Law Journal explaining why the proposed rule change is unnecessary.
