Supreme Court proposes amendment to allow legal advice on medical marijuana law
In record time, the Court drafted an amendment to the Rules of Professional Conduct clarifying the ethical responsibilities of lawyers under the state’s new medical marijuana law. Comments are due by September 18.  

Just two weeks ago, the Court issued an Advisory Opinion saying that Ohio lawyers can’t help clients establish or operate such a business.  Shortly after that announcement, Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor announced she had directed staff to draft an amendment to clarify the services that attorneys can offer clients on this matter.

Oklahoma workers’ comp preserved
The Oklahoma Supreme Court struck down a controversial “opt out” provision of the state’s workers’ compensation law that allows employers to not carry WC coverage for employees.  The Court ruled it was an unconstitutional “special law” that gave employers the ability to provide inequitable treatment for their injured workers.  That leaves Texas as the only state that does not require employers to carry WC insurance for employees.
