Conflict of Interests - Commonwealth's Attorney.


January 15, 1980


It would not be ethically proper for an attorney to represent "X" against "

Y" in civil litigation where the attorney will take office as

Commonwealth's Attorney at a time when final disposition of criminal

charges against "Y" are pending. [See II: DR:5-105 and DR:9-101(B).]
