Time Spent Having Sex With Clients is Not Billable

The Minnesota Supreme Court recently filed an order explaining that if you have sex with a client, you can't bill them for it!  While the court refrained from stating the obvious: that billing clients for sex falls into an entirely different profession, it did suspend the attorney indefinitely for his violations of the Minnesota Rules of Professional Conduct.  The facts of the case are briefly discussed here and here

If this comes as a surprise to you (it shouldn't but no judgment), feel free to check out any of the law library's resources on professional responsibility or ethics:
Just as a reminder, the Washington Bar Exam dedicates a separate day/session for its Professional Responsibility Exam.  Washington State Rules of Professional Conduct are always available here for your review!
