    The current regulatory method of Lawyers regulating Lawyers as "Officers of the Court" is an obvious conflict of interest and a violation of Art 3 "Separation of Powers". How can "Officers of the Court" walk across the street and give legal advice to the Legislature and the Executive? That might be "Absolute Despotism". I would need to read the DOI to see what comes after that. We could Legislate or Litigate but why? Better to amend the Rule as required by the Supremacy Clause and the Oath US Constitution Art 6 Clauses 2 and 3. Judicial Canon 1. We have solutions already drafted. Do you have any questions?

    Would amend Rule 32 of the Rules of the Supreme Court of Arizona to provide that final decisions of Bar licensure and discipline would be decided by a jury trial.
