Hunter appealed the discipline, and he has been vindicated. As reported by Robert Ambrogi on his LawSites blog:
In a decision last week, the Portsmouth Circuit Court sided with Hunter, overturning the finding of misconduct under Rule 1.6, which governs confidentiality of client information. The court concluded that the finding violated the First Amendment.Please click here for Robert's article. Please visit hardinglaw.com for more information about Harding & Associates Family Law
The court did uphold one aspect of the disciplinary committee’s conclusion. It said that Hunter should have included a disclaimer on his website warning that results could vary in others’ cases. It upheld a public admonition for this violation and ordered him to add the disclaimer to his site.
