Kinser dissents on diversity changes

Virginia Supreme Court Justice Cynthia D. Kinser dissented today as the court agreed to additions to the Virginia State Bar’s governance aimed at promoting diversity.

The amendments to the court’s rules give the chair of the VSB’s new diversity conference a seat on the Bar Council. The changes also add diversity promotion to the Council’s list of established powers.

The order entered today adopts the recommendations of the Bar Council approved in June by a vote of 51-13-2.  A line at the bottom of today’s order reads, “JUSTICE KINSER dissents.”

A spokesperson for the court said there was no written dissent from Kinser.
