LEO: Conflict of Interests LE Op. 371
Conflict of Interests.
July 21, 1980
Attorney Z represented clients A and B on unrelated matters. Some time
after the attorney undertook to represent A and B, A became adverse to B.
It is improper for Attorney Z to continue to represent either A or B in
the matter in which they are adverse to one another and he must withdraw
from representing both clients. [See II: DR:2-108(A)(1), DR:4-101(B),
DR:5-105(C), and DR:7-101(A)(1) and (3).]
