Conflicts of Interest.


December 13, 1978


In an action filed by an owners council of a condominium purporting to

represent all of the owners of each unit, it is not improper for a law

firm to .represent a fourth-party defendant in such action when the firm

has previously represented several unit owners and continues to represent

them in ongoing matters, so long as the firm has not been consulted by any

of the unit owners concerning this action and renders full disclosure to

these parties and they consent. [See II: DR:5-105(C).]
