Law firm sues Florida Bar over rules restricting what legal websites and blog posts can say

Law firm sues Florida Bar over rules restricting what legal websites and blog posts can say. Some state bars can be a bit stodgy to say the least.  It appears Florida has taken it too far.  It is impossible to objectively verify vague and unquantifiable words.  So it is unreasonable to require statements to be objectively verifiable when it is impossible to do so.  For example, what does it mean to say a lawyer is "experienced"?  That's not objectively verifiable yet at lawyer who practices for a few years is generally considered "experienced".
