High court kills anti-discrimination amendment to preamble (access required)

The N.C. Supreme Court has rejected an amendment to the preamble of the Rules of Professional Conduct that would ban discrimination by lawyers. The move by the justices in an administrative meeting last week means the issue is dead. Any changes to the rules must be approved by the Supreme Court. The court does not have to give reasons for rejecting a change, and it did not give any this time. "That will essentially be the end of it," said Tom Lunsford (pictured), executive director of the State Bar.
