Gotta get those CLE hours in

The Charleston Gazette reports that Larry L. Harless, the lawyer fighting against using state Lottery money to fund economic development projects, will have his law license suspended Aug. 22 unless he can prove he has taken required Continuing Legal Education courses.

"State Bar regulations required all lawyers to take 24 credit hours of approved CLE courses between July 2000 and June 2002. At least three of those credit hours must have covered legal ethics, office management and/or substance abuse," the article notes.
