Proposed Rules ArchivesRPC 1.6 - Confidentiality of Information
RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT (RPC)
Purpose: At its September, 24, 2010 meeting the Board of Governors of the Washington State Bar Association unanimously adopted the recommendation of the Rules of Professional Conduct Committee described as follows:
This suggested amendment proposes deleting “or other law” in the next to last sentence of comment . Washington did not adopt the “other law” exception to the confidentiality provision contained in Model Rule 1.6(b)(6), but the comment adopted in 2006 mistakenly includes a reference to it. This is a technical correction, not a substantive change.
