Appellate Court Victory: Matter of Gordon
In a 3-2 split decision, the Appellate Division, Third Department reversed an order of the Surrogate’s Court of Albany County (Maney, S.), which had denied our motion seeking to disqualify the other side’s counsel.
The appellate court agreed that opposing counsel was disqualified from representing the other side in the case based on opposing counsel’s prior participation in the same estate as a former judge. The full decision is available at, http://decisions.courts.state.ny.us/ad3/Decisions/2021/529943.pdf
