On Thursday, September 21, 2023, the New York Supreme Court’s Appellate Division, Third Judicial Department, denied attorney David Denning Scaglione’s request to resign from the state bar for non-disciplinary reasons due to his delinquency in meeting New York attorney registration requirements.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of David Denning Scaglione,” with case no. PM-218-23.

Scaglione sought to resign from the bar for non-disciplinary reasons, but the Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department opposed his application. The committee noted that Scaglione was delinquent in his New York attorney registration requirements for the 2022-2023 biennial period, making him ineligible for nondisciplinary resignation.

The court concurred with the committee’s opposition and denied Scaglione’s application. The court noted that Scaglione was subject to potential disciplinary action due to his delinquency and that any future application must be supported by proof of his full satisfaction of the requirements of Judiciary Law § 468-a and Rules of the Chief Administrator of the Courts (22 NYCRR) § 118.1.

The Disposition states:

“ORDERED that David Denning Scaglione’s application for permission to resign is denied.”

According to avvo.com, Mr. Scaglione is an attorney in Tucson, Arizona. He acquired his law license in New York in 1990.
