LEO: Conflict of Interest - County Attorney  LE Op. 843


Conflict of Interest - County Attorney.


October 9, 1986


It is improper for a county attorney charged with a duty to represent the

interests of the county subdivision committee to represent the interests

of a developer in a subdivision application before the county subdivision

committee. If the county and the developer are agreeable, and if the

county retains independent counsel for the subdivision committee, then

after full disclosure and consent, the attorney may represent the

developer. Absent retention of independent counsel by the county

subdivision committee, the Committee feels that representation of the

developer by the attorney would be improper. [ DR:5-105(C) and (D); LE
