Georgia Withdraws Dual-Role Ethics Opinion

The Georgia Supreme Court has accepted a petition by the State Bar to withdraw a 1986 formal advisory opinion.

The opinion held that the dual employment of an attorney as both a state legislator and a part-time solicitor "does not necessarily create an ethical confklict of interest."

The court concluded that the opinion at issue "creates confusion by being internally inconsistent, and by addressing matters that are better addressed by our Georgia Constitution and Georgia statutes." (Mike Frisch)
