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).]
