LEO: Conflict of Interest  LE Op. 301


Conflict of Interest.


September 7, 1978


In a suit filed as a class action, where a contractor has been joined as

a third-party defendant, it is not improper for an attorney to represent

the contractor, where some members of the plaintiff's class have been

represented by the attorney in other legal matters, provided there is full

disclosure and consent by the involved parties. [See II: DR:5-105; EC:5-

14, EC:5-15 and EC:5-16.]
