Mike, I'm not aware of any "actually-enforceable" rules that pertain to defense attorneys or any efforts of defense attorneys to police themselves.


The "guidance" isn't enforceable in court. DOJ wants to prevent the Judiciary from promulgating actually-enforceable rules. Here's hoping that the Judicial Counsel sees this ruse for what it is - a cynical attempt on DOJ's part to prevent judges from actually applying rules to prosecutors.
