WSBA Activities: Keller v. State Bar of California and GR 12 – Finding the Line Between Activities Authorized and Not Authorized. Certain actions taken by the WSBA Board of Governors have generated controversy among the membership. Join an engaging discussion among members of the Supreme Court and the Board of Governors as they debate the permissible parameters of GR 12 and the Keller decision with respect to such decisions as the Board’s resolution supporting same-sex marriage and its decision to file an amicus brief in a recent death penalty case and whether the actions fell within GR 12 and Keller. Should GR 12 be amended to narrow the scope of permissible activities by the WSBA?
Saturday, 8:30 a.m. – 10 a.m., Room CDiscussion facilitated by the Honorable Gerry L. Alexander, Chief Justice, Washington State Supreme Court and WSBA President Mark Johnson
