The Uniform Collaborative Law Act, adopted unanimously by the Uniform Law Commission, was poised for consideration by the ABA House of Delegates at its February 2010 meeting.  It was withdrawn however, due to some opposition.  In Washington, supporters of the uniform Act have picked up the pace.  The WSBA ADR Executive Committee endorsed the Act and has requested that the WSBA Legislative Committee review the Act with a view to recommending its sponsorship by the WSBA. The WSBA recently declined to take a position on the Act before the ABA.  No legislation has been introduced in Washington to date.  The question as to what further review and action should, and can, be taken to advance the Act remains to be seen.   We will keep you posted.
