MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

Sarah Kathryn Dugan was admitted to practice by this Court in 2013 and lists a business address in Tallahassee, Florida with the Office of Court Administration. Dugan 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 Dugan's application by correspondence dated March 14, 2018.

Upon reading Dugan's affidavit sworn to February 14, 2018 and filed February 20, 2018, and upon reading the March 14, 2018 correspondence in response by the Chief Attorney for AGC, and having determined that Dugan is eligible to resign for nondisciplinary reasons, we grant her application and accept her resignation.

Garry, P.J., Egan Jr., Clark, Mulvey and Pritzker, JJ., concur.
