California State Bar waives right to respond to Petition

In the U.S. Supreme Court case of Fine v. State Bar, the updated docket (link above) shows Fine's Petition for Writ of Certiorari ("disbarment" issue) has been scheduled for conference before the justices on Sept. 29, 2009.

Presumably finally realizing that its position has no merit, not the least of which are the First Amendment issues, the State Bar of California has filed a waiver of its right to respond to the Petition.
