MEMORANDUM AND ORDER ON MOTION

Per Curiam.Theodore E. Dinsmoor was admitted to practice by this Court in 1982 and lists a business address in Wellesley, Massachusetts with the Office of Court Administration. Dinsmoor now seeks leave to resign from the New York bar for nondisciplinary reasons (see Rules for Attorney Disciplinary Matters [ 22 NYCRR] § 1240.22 [a] ).
