    Disclosure of Confidence/Bankruptcy.


    January 18, 1982


    An attorney who discovers that his client has made payments to creditors outside of the Chapter 13 bankruptcy plan should reveal this fact to the Bankruptcy Court. Such disclosure does not violate the attorney's obligations to maintain the confidences and secrets of his clients. [See II: DR:4-101(D)(2).]
