McDonald et al v. Longley et al

On March 6, 2019, a lawsuit was filed in the Western District of Texas claiming that under Janus v. AFSCME, 138 S. Ct. 2448 (2018), it is unconstitutional for an attorney to be compelled to be a member of the State Bar of Texas in order to practice law.

The State Bar of Texas is confident it is fulfilling all statutory responsibilities as the administrative arm of the Texas Supreme Court consistent with the Court’s authority to regulate the legal profession. The pending legal action will be addressed accordingly.
