Supreme Court considers change in lawyer discipline

(6/23/2004)-- The Pennsylvania Supreme Court's disciplinary board is proposing to make charges and hearings against an attorney public once a "petition for discipline" is filed and the lawyer allowed to respond, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported today. The proposed change would not open the record until after the board has eliminated meritless charges, and would allow the board to seal some of the records.
