A Bar rule amendment that guarantees all judicial complaints about lawyer conduct that result in a dismissal will get a Board of Governors and perhaps Supreme Court review has been approved by the court.

The court on October 21 approved, with a slight change, the Board of Governors-recommended creation of Bar Rule 3-7.18.

“The new rule establishes a process by which the Board of Governors of The Florida Bar and the Court will review and approve the disposition of referrals regarding lawyer misconduct from members of the judiciary that do not result in a finding of probable cause or the filing of a formal complaint if a finding of probable cause is not required,” the court said in the per curiam opinion.
