Sen. Kurita attempts to ban some DUI ads

Sen. Rosalind Kurita (D-Clarksville) is attempting to ban some forms of advertising by lawyers who have DUI defense as part of their practice. Sen. Jim Kyle (D-Memphis) opposed her amendment on federal First Amendment grounds as well as his desire to keep the Legislature out of judicial ethics. The amendment may in part be a shot at her primary challenger, Tim Barnes, a Clarksville attorney who works in DUI defense and other areas.
