There is a newly revised Professional Responsibility Rule, governing the ethics of lawyers. I thought it might be of general interest, so I am posting the new standard described by the Utah State Bar below:

RPC08.04(c). Misconduct. AMEND. Codifies in new paragraph (2) Ethics Advisory Opinion 02-05, which concluded that 8.4(1)(c) (conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation) does not apply to government attorneys overseeing an otherwise legal undercover criminal investigation.

If you click on the link to the Ethics Advisory Opinion you will be able to read the reasoning underlying the change.

Our government has been caught in the trap the Lord warned us against: “Verily, verily I say unto you, woe be unto him that lies to deceive because he supposes that another lies to deceive, for such are not exempt from the justice of God.” T&C JSH 10:12
