Supreme Court to make lawyers pledge to be civil

Posted By on Thu, Feb 23, 2012 at 10:56 AM

The Arkansas Supreme Court today joined a national movement and changed the pledge that lawyers take to be admitted to the bar to include a pledge of civility.

Here's the order, which includes the full pledge. It promises, among others, "fairness, integrity and civility" in all communications in and out of court with opposing counsel.

Your snark may now follow.

  • Tangerine Dream, art theft, 'Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me' and more

Froese accomplished a lot of incredible and implausible things in his life — this is a man who both studied with Salvador Dali and recorded the soundtrack to Grand Theft Auto V. He also helped invent and legitimize Krautrock, electronic music and New Age, scored films by Fassbender, William Friedkin, Ridley Scott and Michael Mann, and was the only consistent member of a genuinely innovative band for several decades.
