On Thursday, December 21, 2023, the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York’s Third Judicial Department permitted attorney Sean Richard Delaney to resign from the New York Bar for nondisciplinary reasons.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Sean Richard Delaney,” with case no. PM-278-23.

In a memorandum and order, the court considered Delaney’s affidavit, filed on December 6, 2023, seeking nondisciplinary resignation. The Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department, which oversees attorney conduct and discipline, advised the court that it did not oppose Delaney’s application. On Dec. 15, 2023, the Deputy Chief Attorney for the Committee submitted a letter in response supporting Delaney’s resignation.

The five justices of the Appellate Division unanimously approved Delaney’s request. With the acceptance of his resignation, Delaney’s name will be stricken from the roll of attorneys authorized to practice law in New York. He is also commanded to refrain from engaging in the practice of law or holding himself out as an attorney in New York state.

Delaney has 30 days to surrender any Attorney Secure Pass issued by the New York Office of Court Administration. His resignation concludes his ability to represent clients or practice law within the New York legal system.

The Disposition states:

“ORDERED that Sean Richard Delaney’s application for permission to resign is granted and his nondisciplinary resignation is accepted,”

According to avvo.com, Mr. Delaney is an attorney in Baltimore, Maryland. He attended the Boston College Law School. He acquired his law license in New York in 2009.
