[*1]In the Matter of John Murray Nannes, an Attorney. (Attorney Registration No. 1767086.)
Calendar Date: December 21, 2020
Before: Egan Jr., J.P., Lynch, Clark, Aarons and Pritzker, JJ.
John Murray Nannes, Bethesda, Maryland, pro se.
Monica A. Duffy, Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department, Albany, for Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department.
John Murray Nannes was admitted to practice by this Court in 1982 and lists a business address in Bethesda, Maryland with the Office of Court Administration. Nannes now seeks leave to resign from the New York bar for nondisciplinary reasons (see Rules for Attorney Disciplinary Matters [22 NYCRR] § 1240.22 [a]). The Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department (hereinafter AGC) advises that it does not oppose Nannes’ application.
Upon reading Nannes’ affidavit sworn to September 15, 2020 and filed September 21, 2020, and upon reading the December 8, 2020 correspondence in response by the Chief Attorney for AGC, and having determined that Nannes is eligible to resign for nondisciplinary reasons, we grant his application and accept his resignation.
Egan Jr., J.P., Lynch, Clark, Aarons and Pritzker, JJ., concur.
ORDERED that John Murray Nannes’ application for permission to resign is granted and his nondisciplinary resignation is accepted; and it is further
ORDERED that John Murray Nannes’ name is hereby stricken from the roll of attorneys and counselors-at-law of the State of New York, effective immediately, and until further order of this Court (see generally Rules for Attorney Disciplinary Matters [22 NYCRR] § 1240.22 [b]); and it is further
ORDERED that John Murray Nannes is commanded to desist and refrain from the practice of law in any form in the State of New York, either as principal or as agent, clerk or employee of another; and Nannes is hereby forbidden to appear as an attorney or counselor-at-law before any court, judge, justice, board, commission or other public authority, or to give to another an opinion as to the law or its application, or any advice in relation thereto, or to hold himself out in any way as an attorney and counselor-at-law in this State; and it is further
ORDERED that John Murray Nannes shall, within 30 days of the date of this decision, surrender to the Office of Court Administration any Attorney Secure Pass issued to him.
