Florida Bar gives the OK to cloud-computing

Last year, the Florida Professional Ethics Committee recommended that that a formal ethics opinion be prepared in light of the growing use of the cloud by attorneys in the state.

And so it has been.  As was widely expected, Florida held with the growing consensus of states in finding that cloud-computing is ethically permissible.

Specifically, "lawyers may use cloud computing if they take reasonable precautions to ensure that confidentiality of client information is maintained."
