LEO: Reporting Violations - Client's Former  LE Op. 497


Reporting Violations - Client's Former Attorney.


February 15, 1983


It is not improper for an attorney, who during the course of his

representation determines that his client's former attorney violated the

Code of Professional Responsibility, to refrain from disclosing the

violations when such disclosure would adversely affect his client's

interests and the client has not consented to the disclosure. [ DR:1-103(
