LEO: County Attorney - Conflict of Interest  LE Op. 394


County Attorney - Conflict of Interest.


November 14, 1980


It is not improper for a county attorney to represent the interests of

the county before a local county Retirement Board, even though the county

attorney normally acts as legal advisor to the Retirement Board, so long

as independent counsel has been retained to advise the Board, the county

attorney initially began representing the county in the matter before it

was brought before the Retirement Board, and both the county and the

Retirement Board consent after full disclosure. [See II: DR:5-105(C).]


Committee Opinion November 14, 1980
