N.J. state troopers seek a seat at the bar

Two organizations that represent New Jersey state troopers have filed a lawsuit against Attorney General Anne Milgram, seeking the right to moonlight as lawyers.

Milgram changed state regulations in 2007 to prohibit officers who earn law degrees from practicing law while they are employed by the state police. Officers who do so face suspension or termination.

The lawsuit argues that officers are not barred from moonlighting in other professions.

The Office of the Attorney General said the changes were introduced to eliminate potential conflicts of interest. It also noted that the changes apply to attorneys in the Office of the Attorney General.

Final note:
Thinking about limiting outside work? Banning all moonlighting may make more sense than targeting just some jobs or professions.
