Sports Tickets for Real Estate Attorneys - Title Regulation Annulled - Game On

Insurance Regulation 208 has been annulled in the Article 78 case of New York State Land Title Association, Inc.; The Great American Title Agency, Inc.; and Venture Title Agency, Inc. v. The New York State Department of Financial Services; and Maria Vullo, in her official capacity as Superintendent of the New York State Department of Financial Services.

As a result, and unless the decision is reversed, sports tickets for real estate attorneys are available anew from title companies. However, can an attorney ethically accept such tickets without running afoul of Rule 1.8(f) of the Rules of Professional Conduct?
