New SJC Rule 4:02(10) effective Thursday

Rule 4:02, Registration of Attorneys, was amended in June to add the following subsection (10):

(10) Residential Addresses Confidential

Residential addresses disclosed on registration statements, except those designated as the registrant's place of business, shall be treated as confidential and shall be used by the Board and by Bar Counsel only for the purpose of communicating with registrants or otherwise in the course of the business of the Board or Bar Counsel. Other than in the course of such business, neither the Board nor Bar Counsel shall disclose any such residential address to any third party unless directed to do so by order of this Court for Suffolk County.
The new subsection is effective September 1, 2011.
