Appearance of Impropriety - Attorney's Spouse Employed as

Assistant County Attorney.


April 10, 1984


It is not improper for an attorney to accept employment as an assistant

county attorney when that attorney's spouse, either individually or

through his law firm, conducts significant litigation against the county,

so long as the assistant county attorney has no contact with any

litigation involving the spouse. [ DR:5-101, LE Op. 185.]
