Could Someone Explain This For Me?

Apparently, DC Lawyers are bristling that they might not be able to screw their clients. Not just in the courtroom, or at the bank, but anywhere, for any reason:

The D.C. Court of Appeals is considering revisions to ethics rules based on a model from the American Bar Association. That model considers “transactions” – another word for sex – with clients to be a conflict of interest.

So, sleeping with your client isn’t a conflict of interest? Well, perhaps it is: “Instead, it wants a strong warning that sleeping with clients could create a conflict of interest. Lawyer Anthony Epstein tells the D.C. Examiner the local bar doesn’t approve the practice, it just doesn’t think a categorical ban is appropriate.”

Yeah, I really got nothin’.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
