Is it ethical to tell anyone you are a Virginia Super Lawyer?

In New Jersey, the legal ethics police have declared it unethical to publish one's listing as a "Super Lawyer."

This article, via law.com, notes that there was a similar snafu in Virginia about lawyers identifying themselves as listed among the "Best Lawyers in America," which resulted in a federal court ruling against the Virginia State Bar and then the settlement vaguely described here.

Here marketeer Larry Bodine weighs in that the New Jersey opinion is "stupid."
