No Red Flags Rule for Lawyers

On October 29, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that the FTC's Red Flags Rules cannot be enforced against lawyers, saying that the FTC's interpretation of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act overreaches and its application to lawyers is unreasonable.

NYCLA organized a CLE Program on November 5 which discussed the decision and its significance for the independance of the legal profession.
