Board approves funds for grievance process survey

first_img January 1, 2004 Regular News Board approves funds for grievance process survey Board approves funds for grievance process surveycenter_img Money for surveys for the Bar’s ongoing review of its grievance process and staff time transfers for a new advertising task force have been approved by the Bar Board of Governors, acting on recommendations of the Budget Committee.Both those activities were also approved by the Program Evaluation Committee, and the board also approved two other budget amendments.Budget Committee Chair Jesse Diner said the Special Commission on Lawyer Regulation sought $22,342 to survey judges, lawyers, grievance committee members, complainants, and others involved in the grievance process.Special commission Chair Hank Coxe reported to the board that the commission’s work is proceeding well. He said the panel has already received a wide range of comments and advice, but in addition wants to do a comprehensive survey of people who have been involved in the grievance process.“It is a remarkable education process,” Coxe said of the commission’s work so far. “It’s going to be a tedious process, but I think a worthwhile one. I am amazed at the number of people who are aware this is going on.”On the advertising task force, Diner said that President-elect Kelly Overstreet Johnson is creating that panel to review Bar advertising regulations and their effectiveness. That will require an allocation of $10,210 plus Bar staff time.Johnson said she hopes to appoint the task force this month, which she expects will have 13 to 15 members.“I definitely plan to put people on who advertise,” she said. “I think we need their input to see what rules work and which don’t.”Johnson said she also wants to ask Bar attorney Barry Richard about whether the Bar can constitutionally require lawyers to submit ads for Bar review before they are published or aired without running afoul of prior restraint issues. Present Bar rules require that ads to be reviewed must be submitted no later than concurrently with their first publication.On other budget matters, Diner recommended and the board approved paying $8,963 for a planning retreat. Those expenses, he explained, are part of implementing the recommendation to have the Bar’s Executive Committee, with a few additional members, take over long-range planning for the Bar.President-elect Johnson said the board will be getting a plan for that transition at its January 30 meeting. “We’ve got a good workable plan, and we’re looking forward to being able to give that to you,” she said.The Budget Committee also recommended, and the board approved, a $3,000 allocation to the joint Bar/CPA committee. The money will be used to help pay for an upcoming CLE seminar on complying with the Sarbanes Oxley Act.last_img read more
