Lawyers are under a general ethical obligation to advise their clients and the public, in general, to comply with federal law and participate in Census 2020. Our partners at the National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance (NQAPIA) commissioned legal research reviewing attorney ethical considerations and obligations regarding the Census under the Rules of Professional Conduct in the following thirteen jurisdictions: CA, DC, FL, GA, IL, MD, MA, NJ, NY, PA, TX, VA, and WA. The Memorandum of Law is here: http://bit.ly/2IJgQQl
The memo is provided for informational purposes and does not constitute legal advice covering a specific situation, nor does it create an attorney-client relationship. Contact an ethics lawyer for legal advice in your jurisdiction.
