The California State Bar has approved an ethics rule that prohibits any sexual relationship between attorneys and clients. Currently, only sex offered as payment for legal representation or otherwise demanded by attorneys is banned, but the new rule would impose a blanket ban if approved by the Supreme Court. Seventeen other states have already imposed such a ban, but some of California's attorneys are fighting the ruling by claiming that it is an invasion of their privacy.
