The case is titled ‘In the Matter of Peter G. Rossi, an Attorney’ with case no. PM-265-23.

In his application filed on October 3, 2023, Rossi, whose business address is listed in Wyndmoor, Pennsylvania, sought permission to resign from the New York bar for nondisciplinary reasons under Rule 1240.22(a) of the Rules for Attorney Disciplinary Matters.

The Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department, which has oversight of attorney conduct and discipline in the appellate division that covers 20 counties in eastern New York, advised the court that it did not oppose Rossi’s application.
