Third Party Action - Conflict.


September 19, 1975


It is not improper for an attorney to represent co-plaintiffs in a

personal injury suit despite a third party action against one of the

plaintiffs, nor is it improper for the attorney to also represent that

client as a defendant in the third party action. [See II: DR:5-105(C).]
