The New Jersey Supreme Court has issued a public censure for a conflict of interest in a real estate transaction.
The attorney represented the buyer and seller in the transaction without full disclosure and a written waiver of the conflict. He then represented the seller in litigation brought by the buyer.
We all know that that is a no-no.
The Disciplinary Review Board had recommended the censure, finding the conflict but not a charge of conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice. (Mike Frisch)
