Andrew J. Murray was admitted to practice by this Court in 2008 and lists a business address in Providence, Rhode Island with the Office of Court Administration. Murray now seeks leave to resign from the New York bar for nondisciplinary reasons (see Uniform Rules for Attorney Disciplinary Matters [22 NYCRR] § 1240.22 [a]). The Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department advises that it does not oppose Murray's application.
