Josh Byrne Quoted in Law360 Article

/ 23.Nov, 2016
Swartz Campbell partner, Josh Byrne, Esquire, was quoted extensively in a Law360 article examining the potential effect of proposed amendments to Pennsylvania Rule of Professional Conduct 8.4 in conjunction with the release of a new report on the email scandal arising out of lewd and offensive emails exchanged on Pennsylvania government email servers.  The proposed Rule 8.4(g) would make harassment and discrimination in the practice of law a violation of the Pennsylvania Rules of Professional Conduct.  Among other quotes, Mr. Byrne stated: “Material included in this report may not be subject to discipline under any of the proposals for amendment of Rule 8.4, but the existence of a rule which states that it is a violation to discriminate or harass would be a powerful statement to the legal community that this type of behavior is unprofessional and unacceptable.”
