City Council Member - Attorney - Appearance of Impropriety.


July 15, 1980


It is improper for an attorney whose law partner is a member of City

Council to seek from the City Council a cable TV franchise for a

corporation in which both the City Council member and the law partner are

shareholders. Impartial counsel should be retained to represent the

corporation. [See II: DR:8-101(A)(1) and (2) and DR:9-101(B) and (C).]
