The Kansas Supreme Court is accepting public comment on proposed Rule 241: Rule Relating to the Lawyers' Fund for Client Protection under attorney discipline.
This proposal moves current Rule 227 to Rule 241 and amends the rule.
Proposed changes fall into three categories:
amendments to transfer administrative duties from the Office of the Clerk of the Appellate Courts to the Office of the Disciplinary Administrator;
extensive renumbering, restyling, and retooling amendments to align this rule with other Supreme Court rules; and
minor amendments for clarity.
The proposed changes do not substantively affect the consideration of claims made to the Client Protection Fund.
Amendments in Rule 241 are shown using strikethrough for deletion and underlining for new language.
Comment may be made by email to SCRulespubliccomment@kscourts.org until noon Friday, October 9, 2020. The subject line must read "Rule 241."
