LEO: Law Firm - Employees LE Op. 893
Law Firm - Employees.
April 1, 1987
It is not improper per se for employees of a law firm to give Christmas
gifts of cookies valued at less than $10 to employees of a circuit court
clerk's office. The committee is of the opinion that a gift of such an
amount, to be divided among several employees, and given as part of the
normal Christmas spirit, does not amount to a gift of such value as might
give the appearance that the gift was made to influence official action. [
