7305 Nights at the Bates Motel

Record #:
The Bates that Lunsford in this case referred to a United States Supreme court case that took twenty years to be resolved. The case, Bates vs Arizona State Bar, involved protection of the First Amendment to the commercial speech (as in, advertisement) of lawyers’ services. The issue was resolved by offering two proposals: proposal A, one which required certain information to be disclosed about the lawyer; proposal B, which prohibited advertising that was false, deceptive, or misleading.
