Conflict of Interest - Representation Against Former Client.
December 19, 1984
It is not improper for an attorney to initiate an action against his
former client alleging negligent causation of injury to his former
client's grandson, the current client, when appropriate disclosure has
been made to both the former client and to the adult parents of the
current client, and when consent has been given to the representation in
both instances. [ DR:4-101(B)(3), DR:5-105(D), LE Op. 441]
