The Supreme Court will not hear oral arguments in a Bar rules case regarding speaker diversity in CLE programming.

An August 6 order signed by Supreme Court Clerk John A. Tomasino announced that “the case has been submitted to the Court without oral argument.”

On April 15, the court on its own motion adopted amendments to Bar Rule 6-3.10 that would prohibit a Business Law Section policy promoting speaker diversity in section-sponsored CLE programming. The court ruled that the section’s policy violated U.S. Supreme Court rulings barring the use of quotas in pursuing affirmative action.
