Other Blawgospheric Voices on the Referendum

Thanks to the following bloggers, and especially to our out-of-state colleagues, for weighing in on the State Bar of Texas’s attempts to amend the Disciplinary Rules and efforts to do away with flat fees:

Max Kennerly, Sound And Fury Over Flat Fees, Signifying Nothing Gideon, Blawg Review #294: MLK, Jr. Day edition Brian Tannebaum, Shame On The Texas Bar, And Us Scott Greenfield, Flat Fees and the Last Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer Colin Samuels, A Round Tuit (53) Jeff Gamso, If I Only Had a Vote

Paul Smith, It’s Big Vs. Little,, Money Vs. Underdog,, Corporate Vs. Individual Paul Kennedy, Just follow the money Paul Kennedy, Let our voices be heard Paul Kennedy, The State Bar strikes back Paul Kennedy, State Bar says those opposed to rules changes are liars Murray Newman, Please Vote No on the Texas State Bar Referendum (If I’ve left you out, it was inadvertent. Please email me. Paul is kicking butt. Where are the rest of the Texas criminal-defense blawgers? Guest? Matlock? Floyd? Martinez? Breston? Flood? Spencer? Skinner? Barnett? Maselli? That’s right, boys (and girl), I’m callin’ you out. It’s just about time to rework the blogroll, and I’m looking for an excuse.)

Meanwhile, there have been blog posts in favor of the amendments: State Bar of Texas: Referendum 2011: Q&A with Tom Watkins : State Bar of Texas Blog State Bar of Texas: Referendum 2011: Clarifying the Issues : State Bar of Texas Blog (I detect a pattern here.)

And one possible troll, who seems to think that the problem with the rules is that they provide too much protection to clients and not enough to lawyers (it’s not):
