Boost for Exposing Att’y Pols

The New York City Bar Association yesterday said it’s not an ethical violation for state lawmakers who are lawyers to disclose the names of their clients – adding fuel to a growing debate over legislative ethics. The association issued a statement and report concluding that moonlighting lawyers – who make up about a fifth of the Legislature – should say who their clients are and how much the clients are paying them. The association noted that the information should be made public with the consent of the legislators’ law clients. Exceptions should be made in cases where attorney-client privilege is sensitive, the group said.”
