The American Bar Association's Model Rule of Professional Conduct, proposed in 2016, has been causing controversy in Texas. The rule, which states that a lawyer would be guilty of professional misconduct if they knowingly engaged in behavior that was discriminatory related to the practice of the law, has been seen by some as an infringement on lawyers' religious freedoms.
