Tennessee Adopts Changes to Rules of Professional Conduct, Including Screening

[h/t to Legal Ethics Forum, via Professional Responsibility blog]. Tennessee has adopted changes to its Rules of Professional Conduct, including updates reflecting changes to the ABA Model Rules. With regard to ethical screening of lawyers moving among firms: "...the new rule does not permit screening when a lawyer 'side-switches' while the case is pending, but it does appear to permit screening in other cases." The new rules are set to go into effect January 1, 2011. More details on the Tennessee Bar web site.
