The highlight of the Web site of the National Organization of Bar Counsel has long been its semi-annual compilation of new court cases and ethics opinions involving attorney discipline. While NOBC made these summaries available to anyone who visited its site, it recently restricted access only to its members. The only explanation is the following: “We regret to advise that the database of cases is now available only to members of the National Association of Bar Counsel.”
