Should Sex With Your Lawyer Be Illegal?


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

California is considering a ban on client/lawyer sex. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"The nation's largest state bar association is overhauling ethics rules for attorneys for the first time in 30 years, and some lawyers are unhappy about a proposal that would open them up to discipline for having sex with clients.

California currently bars attorneys from coercing a client into sex or demanding sex in exchange for legal representation.

Supporters of an all-out ban say the relationship between a lawyer and client is inherently unequal, so any sexual relationship is potentially coercive. But some attorneys say it's an unjustified invasion of privacy.

The proposal is part of a long-awaited shake-up of the state bar association's ethics rules for attorneys, which were last fully revised in 1987. Lawyers who violate the regulations are subject to discipline ranging from private censure to loss of their legal license.

A state bar commission has spent months crafting and amending 70 rules under goals set by the California Supreme Court. Other changes under consideration would allow the state bar to discipline attorneys for discrimination and harassment even without a separate finding of wrongdoing. The current rule requires a final determination of wrongful discrimination in a lawsuit or other proceeding before the state bar can take action.

Still another change would bring California in line with other states by subjecting prosecutors to discipline for failing to turn over evidence they know or reasonably should know would help the defense.

"The first and foremost goal is to promote confidence in the legal profession and administration of justice and ensure adequate protection to the public," said Lee Smalley Edmon, a California appellate court judge and head of the commission revising the rules.”*

    Why? The lawyer is gonna screw you one way or the other.

    • Posted by dontworry boutit, at Reply

      true lol

    • Posted by Shane, at Reply

      If lawyers screw you over why even get a lawyer. Represent yourself.


    • Posted by Zee Risek, at Reply

      Because most people don’t know the law well enough to represent themselves.
      Auto mechanics also screw people over, but most people don’t know enough
      about car engines to fix it themselves.

      Falsifying evidence is illegal anyway and in legal cases isn’t the lawyers
      job protecting you above all else anyway?

    • Posted by Joe Scirrotto, at Reply

      Daniel Ryan false evidence is only false if it can be proven false,
      otherwise it can be as valid as any other piece of evidence, also it is not
      to protect at any cost, their job is to see that every FACT of the case
      that can help their client is presented to the jury so they can decide, any
      false evidence not proven invalid can sway their decision from the real

    • Posted by Daniel Ryan, at Reply

      Joe Scirrotto False evidence is still just as illegal when given for a
      lover as any other client. The lawyer will be charged the same way. Saying
      that a lawyer and client can’t be lovers because the lawyer might break the
      law for them is a serious insult to their professionalism. (I presumed
      that’s what you are saying from contextual cues feel free to correct me if
      I misjudged your point.)

    • Posted by Joe Scirrotto, at Reply

      Daniel Ryan i know false evidence is illegal, however, unless the
      prosecution can prove it as such, it is as legal and factual as any other
      piece of evidence, now do i believe all lawyers would risk breaking the law
      to save a lover? no, but the risk of it happening and the low chance of
      disproving it when it does poses a serious risk that we can’t take.

    • Posted by Daniel Ryan, at Reply

      Lawyers have given false evidence for money too. Should we ban paying
      lawyers, you shouldn’t make something illegal because there’s a chance it
      might encourage someone to do something illegal for love/lust someday.

      Leedark3 masturbation isn’t having sex, if it is then we are all not
      virgins (babies masturbate).

    • Posted by Leedark3, at Reply

      +Gloraidy Rivera Here’s the joke -> JOKE.

      And here’s your head—> YOUR HEAD

      Can you tell me where the joke is in relation to your head?

    • Posted by Gloraidy Rivera, at Reply

      +Leedark3 making jokes on a subject when there’s literally millions of
      people out there who genuinely are ignorant over the subject makes for a
      very poor joke and poor judgement. It’s only natural to assume people are
      being ignorant over the Internet than just think a person is making a “it’s
      a joke, I’m only pretending to be stupid because I already knew better. See
      haha it’s so funny because you thought I was stupid” type of joke.

    • Posted by Gloraidy Rivera, at Reply

      +Leedark3​ ok since you insist it was a joke explain exactly how it was a
      “joke”. Just in case you don’t know what a joke is (because you seem to
      think that I’m angry? I’m not, I’m just stating a truth) , they are
      supposed to be funny to a group of people. Since there’s millions of people
      who are undereductated about sex education and masturbation, I’d like to
      know how exactly is the “joke” not made in poor taste? It would be as if
      you made a “joke” about lynching black people by pretending to be an
      alt-right member making racist comments and then saying “it’s just a joke”.
      Seriously, as someone who has lived in several third world places at least
      I take the time to spread knowledge (in those places people will use
      anything such as cut up potatoes to suck out the sperm and think it’s
      safe). You just sit behind a computer screen feeling butthurt because
      someone told you the truth: that your thought process was ignorant and
      therefore needed correcting to prevent the spread of ignorance and that if
      it was done as a “joke” that it was made in very poor taste.

    Usual rules. If everyone’s freely consenting, have at it.

    • Posted by r pray, at Reply

      Exactly! If the client isn’t underage, the adults are mentally competent
      and they consented have at it! But, I do see what the people are saying
      with the imbalance of power.

    • Posted by Deaglan Cullen, at Reply

      +r pray Yes, but the imbalance of power invalidates free consent

    • Posted by Big Bub, at Reply

      Deaglan Cullen
      actually it doesn’t. at least not generally, but in certain circumstances
      it can.
      But there are some that want this “imbalance of power” narrative to become
      something that invalidates consent.

    • Posted by Big Bub, at Reply

      r pray
      yes but that’s life. yiu can always find some kind of “imbalance of power”
      in almost any relationship. so that shouldn’t be enough to make the
      relationship illegal.

      *ik you didn’t say it should be, I’m just stating a point.
