Kevin Allen Wiggins, Mars, Pennsylvania, pro se.

Monica A. Duffy, Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department, Albany, for Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department.

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

Per Curiam.

Kevin Allen Wiggins was admitted to practice by this Court in 1998 and lists a business address in Mars, Pennsylvania with the Office of Court Administration. Wiggins 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 Wiggins's application.

Upon reading Wiggins's affidavit sworn to October 12, 2018 and filed October 18, 2018, and upon reading the November 27, 2018 correspondence in response by the Chief Attorney for AGC, and having determined that Wiggins is eligible to resign for nondisciplinary reasons, we grant his application and accept his resignation.

McCarthy, J.P., Egan Jr., Lynch, Clark and Rumsey, JJ., concur.

ORDERED that Kevin Allen Wiggins' application for permission to resign is granted and his nondisciplinary resignation is accepted; and it is further

ORDERED that Kevin Allen Wiggins' 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 Kevin Allen Wiggins 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 Wiggins 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 Kevin Allen Wiggins shall, within 30 days of the date of this decision, surrender to the Office of Court Administration any Attorney Secure Pass issued to him.
