Ethics advisory opinions to be discussed January 1, 2006 Regular News The Professional Ethics Committee will consider adopting proposed advisory opinions on the following issues based on inquiries from The Florida Bar Board of Governors at a meeting to be held in conjunction with The Florida Bar’s Midyear Meeting at 2 p.m. on Friday, January 20 at the Hyatt Regency in Miami. The Professional Ethics Committee also will consider modifying Florida Ethics Opinion 77-30 (reprinted below) at the request of The Florida Bar Board of Governors. There are no drafts for the committee’s consideration at this time. Pursuant to Procedures 4(c) and (d) of The Florida Bar Procedures for Ruling on Questions of Ethics, comments from Florida Bar members are solicited on the issues presented. Comments must contain the draft proposed advisory opinion number, must clearly state the issues for the committee to consider, and may include a proposed conclusion. Comments should be submitted to Elizabeth Clark Tarbert, Ethics Counsel, The Florida Bar, 651 E. Jefferson Street, Tallahassee 32399-2300, and must be postmarked no later than 30 days from the date of this publication. No final decisions on these issues will be made at the meeting. If the committee votes to modify Florida Ethics Opinion 77-30 and/or issue proposed advisory opinions on the other issues, those will be published in a forthcoming issue of the Bar News. 1. Issue one from the Board of Governors: Lawyers’ use of electronic documents instead of paper documents to store client files, including software retention, passing costs of electronic storage to clients, and whether electronic storage of files are permissible versus mandatory.2. Issue two from the Board of Governors: Lawyers’ use of technology to trace and obtain information about an opponent’s documents and/or on a lawyer’s obligation not to provide documents to opponents that can be traced using such technology. OPINION 77-30, May 9, 1978 An attorney who by contract represents the county commission, not individual members, may not represent an individual commissioner before the Florida Ethics Commission in a matter involving misuse of public office. Such representation would present an inherent conflict and the appearance of impropriety. CPR: EC 5-14, DR 5-105Vice Chairman Waas stated the opinion of the committee: The attorney asks whether a professional conflict would arise under the following circumstances: A county commissioner is charged before the ethics commission with misuse of public office in directing county employees to work on private property during normal working hours with county road equipment. The subject commissioner asks the county attorney to represent him as legal counsel. The county attorney is on contract with the county and engages in the private practice of law in addition to his work for the county. The Committee finds that the above situation represents an inherent conflict and the appearance of impropriety. DR 5-105 commands a lawyer to refuse multiple employment if his professional judgment will be or is likely to be adversely affected by representation of another client. Additionally, EC 5-14 provides: Maintaining the independence of professional judgment required of a lawyer precludes his acceptance or continuation of employment that will adversely affect his judgment on behalf of or dilute his loyalty to a client. This problem arises whenever a lawyer is asked to represent two or more clients who may have differing interests, whether such interests be conflicting, inconsistent, diverse or otherwise discordant. A county attorney represents the county commission, not the individual members serving on it. He places his responsibility as county attorney in jeopardy when he accepts an engagement to represent a particular commissioner before the Florida Ethics Commission.
