The Ethics Board advises:

A legislator is free to commence a lawsuit to challenge the constitutionality of a law
and to seek and retain legal counsel to represent himself or herself.

If a legislator wants to join an existing lawsuit, the Ethics Board recommends that
the legislator direct a letter to the Court asking that he or she be permitted to join
the plaintiffs as a party or as amicus curiae, representing himself or herself.

The Board further advises that a legislator not permit a lobbying organization to
pay or arrange for legal services for the legislator.
