LEO: Commonwealth's Attorney's - Part-Time  LE Op. 684


Commonwealth's Attorney's - Part-Time Practice - Partners -

Conflict of Interest.


April 10, 1985


It would not be improper for the other members of the law firm of a part-

time assistant commonwealth's attorney to defend criminal cases in the

jurisdiction where the part-time commonwealth's attorney prosecutes only

welfare fraud and child support enforcement cases so long as the assistant

commonwealth's attorney has no contact with or responsibility for the

Commonwealth's cases in which members of his law firm are appearing as

defense counsel.
