On November 2, 2023, the New York Supreme Court Appellate Division Third Judicial Department entered an order removing Attorney Morris Yamner’s name from the roll of attorneys of the State of New York pursuant to the latter’s application for resignation for non-disciplinary reasons.

The case is entitled “In the Matter of Morris Yamner,” with case no. PM-244-23.

According to the Memorandum and Order on Motion, Yamner sought resignation and filed his petition. The Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department, however, initially opposed Yamner’s application, highlighting omissions in his filings. Yamner then filed supplements on October 18 and 26 to address the AGC’s concerns.

The Court, in a per curiam decision, stated that Yamner was eligible to resign for non-disciplinary reasons. It then granted his application and struck his name from the roll of New York attorneys. As part of accepting his resignation, the court ordered Yamner to refrain from practicing law in New York going forward and to surrender any Attorney Secure Passes issued by the court within 30 days.

According to Avvo, Mr. Ymaner is a real estate attorney in Newark, New Jersey. He graduated from Georgetown University Law Center in 1962 and obtained his law license in New York in 1983.
