LEO: Conflict of Interests/Attorney as Member  LE Op. 484


Conflict of Interests/Attorney as Member of Medical

Malpractice Panel.


November 8, 1982


It is not improper, per se, for an attorney who serves as general counsel

for and member of the board of directors of a hospital and a nursing home

to sit on a medical malpractice panel. The attorney, however, must avoid

any conflict of interests that may arise while serving on the panel.
