When is a lawyer also a doctor

There is an interesting ABA article and ethics opinion that discusses when a lawyer, with a J.D. (Juris Doctor) can call him/herself a Dr. under Rule 7.1. State jurisdictions differ. If a Ph.D. can be called doctor, why can’t a lawyer. After all, wasn’t that one of the reasons behind the movement for J.D.s?

This is an interesting, though not earth-shattering, topic.
