Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards vetoes S.B. 43, a bill intended to restrict attorney advertising and based on the same legislation that CCL successfully argued was unconstitutional in West Virginia. CCL's Robert S. Peck testified against the Louisiana bill in the Senate and House Commerce Committees, explaining why it was unconstitutional. The legislation, nonetheless, was approved by both Houses. 

     However, the governor vetoed the bill, ending its journey into law. In May, a federal district court declared the West Virginia version of the bill unconstitutional in a case brought by CCL with the Segal Law Firm. The State of West Virginia has, however, appealed the decision, and a briefing schedule for the appeal has now been set.
