Lawyer Ordered To Apologize For Comair Ads

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Supreme Court has ordered a public apology from a North Carolina lawyer accused of improperly advertising his services to families of the 49 people killed in the 2006 Comair crash.

Joseph Anderson has been ordered to take out full-page newspaper ads to issue the apologies. The Supreme Court issued the order Thursday in response to an investigation by the Kentucky Bar Association.

Federal law prohibits a lawyer from making any direct contact with a crash victim's family until 45 days after the accident. According to court documents, Anderson established a Web site shortly after the crash that provided counseling services but also advertised his firm.
