Seems the matter has been addressed...

.....at the level of authroity that it would need to be:

 

But according to a post on The Docket, the blog of the Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly, Jacobson's charge has been rejected by Michael Fredrickson, the general counsel of the Massachusetts Board of Bar Overseers, which is "an independent administrative body to investigate and evaluate complaints against lawyers." According to The Docket:

Rule 5.5 of the Massachusetts Rules of Professional Conduct states that an attorney cannot, without a license to practice in Massachusetts, "establish an office or other systematic and continuous presence in this jurisdiction for the practice of law." It also states an attorney cannot, without a license, "hold out to the public or otherwise represent that the lawyer is admitted to practice law in this jurisdiction."

Michael Fredrickson, general counsel for the BBO, says he does not believe a law professor would be considered to have "a continuous presence" or "an office practicing law."

"If they actually practice here - as some part-time law professors at some of the smaller schools do - they might," Fredrickson says. "But being a professor at one of the large schools, their office is a professor's office, and the fact that they tend to dabble in the practice of law doesn't run afoul of our rule. I don't think Elizabeth Warren would fall within that, such that she would have to register here."

Laughable. Laws don't apply to the progressives.

She was on Diane Rheme the other day, said that when Geithner called her at 6 AM in a panic because Bear Stearns was going belly up she replied "investment banks go bankrupt" and rolled over for another half hour of Zs.

From your top link.

UPDATE 4 9/27: Professor Jacobson has uncovered new facts that I view as a gamechanger.  Although I stand by my above analysis as applied to the facts known at the time, Professor Jacobson’s discovery this morning answers my objections to his arguments.

 

 

From your bottom link.

"The point is that Jacobson is a Rottweiler, as he has sniffed out this story and
he’s not letting it go".

 

Isn't that what journalist are suppose to do? Remember Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein?
