Proposed Rules ArchivesRPC 1.8 - Conflict of Interest: Current Client: Specific Rules
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:
The suggested amendment proposes deleting the semicolon in (g) after “two or more clients” in the first sentence of this paragraph, correcting a typographical error.
It is also proposed that the reference to WSBA Informal Ethics Opinion 1647 in comment  be deleted. Adopted in 2008, this is the only reference in the RPCs and comments to any WSBA ethics opinion, formal or informal. Because informal opinions are advisory in nature, and because the Rules of Professional Conduct Committee intends to undertake a review of these opinions in the near future, the Committee felt that it is best to delete this reference in the RPC comments. This is a non-substantive change.
