MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Calendar Date: December 30, 2011
Before: Mercure, Acting P.J., Malone Jr., Stein, Garry and Egan Jr., JJ.
Respondent was admitted to practice by this Court in 1978. He maintained an office for the practice of law in the City of Binghamton, Broome County.
By decision dated December 9, 2010, respondent was suspended by this Court for a period of three months (Matter of Whiting, 79 AD3d 1359 ). He now applies for reinstatement.
Petitioner advises that it does not oppose the application.
Our examination of the papers submitted on the application indicates that respondent has complied with the provisions of the order of suspension and with the Court's rules regarding the conduct of suspended attorneys (see 22 NYCRR 806.9). 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, Acting P.J., Malone Jr., Stein, 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.
