Ridiculous Lawyer Advertising Ethics Ruling From Indiana

The Supreme Court of Indiana has publically reprimanded an Indiana lawyer who used the phrase "legal advertisiment" instead of "advertising material" on marketing pieces.

The lawyers defense? "We submitted the piece to the Indiana Bar as the rules require and no one said anything."

Response from the Indiana Supreme Court:

Just because you submit it doesn't mean anyone actually reads it!!!

Heres the full opinion of this ridiculous legal ethics ruling from Indiana.

How can I get a speeding ticket when I don't know the speed limit. "Ignorance is no defense," right? You can review the ABA rules here: http://www.marketinglawyers.org/educational-resource-center/ Better safe than sorry. This is just a distraction no one needs!

How can an attorney be reprimanded for following the rules in his State? It's not his fault the committee failed to read and/or review it.
