On Thursday, September 21, 2023, the Supreme Court of New York’s Appellate Division, Third Judicial Department, issued a memorandum and order in the matter of attorney Jonathan Andrew David. The court granted David’s application for permission to resign from the New York bar for non-disciplinary reasons.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Jonathan Andrew David,” with case no. PM-217-23.

David submitted an affidavit sworn on June 19, 2023, and filed on June 23, 2023, in support of his application. However, the Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department opposed David’s application due to an omission in his affidavit. In response, David filed a supplemental filing on September 7, 2023, which cured the omission. The court determined that David was eligible to resign for non-disciplinary reasons and granted his application.

David’s name was stricken from the roll of attorneys and counselors-at-law of the State of New York. He was commanded to desist and refrain from practicing law in any form in the state, either as principal or agent, clerk or employee of another. David was also forbidden to appear as an attorney or counselor-at-law before any court, judge, justice, board, commission, or other public authority, or to give another an opinion as to the law or its application, or any advice in relation thereto, or to hold himself out in any way as an attorney and counselor-at-law in this state.

The Disposition states:

“ORDERED that Jonathan Andrew David’s application for permission to resign is granted and his nondisciplinary resignation is accepted.”

According to avvo.com, Mr. David is a patent infringement attorney in Cranford, New Jersey. He attended the Seton Hall Law School. He acquired his law license in New York in 1998. At the time of writing, he is listed as a lawyer at Lerner David Intellectual Property Law.
