Donald K. Stern v. Supreme Judicial Court, et al.

November 01, 1999

This case concerned rules that applied constraints to the behavior of federal prosecutors. The BBA stated that the adoption of Rule 3.8 f was a proper exercise of the district court to regulate the conduct of attorneys appearing before it. Furthermore, Rule 3.8 f was a valid exercise of the district court’s power to protect the attorney client relationship.
