The trial has been cancelled for the lawsuit started over New York’s new attorney advertising rules that went into effect on June 1, 2007. According to Greg Beck, who has been litigating this matter for Public Citizen:
We had a trial scheduled on June 18, but since then we agreed that there were no disputed facts and cross moved for summary judgment. We have oral argument on June 18 instead of trial. We also have our [preliminary injunction] motion still pending, and there’s a good chance the judge will at least rule on that, if not on the summary judgment motion, on June 18th….
Opening briefs are attached along with stipulated facts. Response briefs are due Friday.
