Amendments to the Pennsylvania Rules of Professional Conduct; No. 30 Disciplinary Rules; Doc. No. 1
[34 Pa.B. 5126]
And Now, this 23rd day of August, 2004, it is ordered, pursuant to Article V, Section 10, of the Constitution of Pennsylvania, that:
1. The Pennsylvania Rules of Professional Conduct are amended by adding new Rules 1.0, 2.4 and 6.5, deleting Rules 2.2 and 7.6, and making the other amendments set forth at 34 Pa.B. 4818 (September 4, 2004).
2. This Order shall be processed in accordance with Pa.R.J.A. 103(b). New Rules 1.0, 2.4 and 6.5, the deletion of Rules 2.2 and 7.6, and the amendments to other rules set forth at 34 Pa.B. 4818 shall take effect on January 1, 2005 and shall govern matters thereafter commenced and, insofar as just and practicable, matters then pending.
Mr. Justice Saylor joins this Order, and also favors conformance of the revised rules with the provisions of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct which would expressly permit the rules to be used as evidence of the applicable standard of conduct in appropriate cases outside the disciplinary arena.
