That is the only thing that is reasonable outside of tin foil hat conspiracy theories. Though I still don't see it as being "on a list", but rather, a conflict of interest.

When I went out to get myself a lawyer, before they could represent me, they had to consider who my likely legal opponents were, and whether or not they had represented them. That took about 15 minutes or less, and they came back happy to represent.
