Vicarious Disqualification — Conflict of Interests.
December 4, 1979
It would be ethically improper for a law firm or any of its members to continue representing a client in an indemnity action against a formerly dismissed third party, who was represented in that third party action by an attorney, now a new associate of the firm, unless the potential indemnitor specifically agrees to such representation, after full disclosure. [See II: DR:5-105.]
