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
