"The pending discussion was sparked by an email sent to former State Bar Assistant Executive Director Lynda Tanner by BOG member Steve Levine, who questioned why the bar spent $27,688 to hire Bobbi Howell of Foley & Lardner LLP to defend a bylaw in front of the state Supreme Court. That bylaw, as well as a corresponding rules petition, would have, in part, given the BOG power to remove a governor."
