In this disciplinary case, The Florida Bar accuses Lanell Williams-Yulee of violating ethical rules for attorneys, based in part on allegedly violating a provision in the Judicial Code of Conduct that prohibits judicial candidates from personally soliciting campaign contributions. The referee assigned to the case concluded Ms. Williams-Yulee was guilty of some of the ethical violations alleged by The Bar. She challenges that conclusion and also the constitutionality of the rule covering judicial campaign fundraising.
