Respondent was admitted to practice by this Court in 1974. He maintained an office for the practice of law in the City of Hudson, Columbia County.
By decision dated June 24, 2010, respondent was suspended by this Court for a period of one year (Matter of Sack, 74 AD3d 1697 ). He now applies for reinstatement. Petitioner advises that it does not oppose the application.

We are also satisfied that respondent has complied with the requirements of this Court's rule regarding reinstatement (see 22 NYCRR 806.12 [b]), and that he possesses the character and general fitness to resume the practice of law.
Accordingly, the application is granted and respondent is reinstated to the practice of law, effective immediately.
Mercure, J.P., Kavanagh, McCarthy, Garry and Egan Jr., JJ., concur.
ORDERED that respondent's application is granted; and it is further
ORDERED that respondent is reinstated as an attorney and counselor-at-law in the State of New York, effective immediately.
