Re: Your letter, September 5, 1974
It is the consensus of the Committee that Guidance Clinic matters may be
involved regularly in the circuit court regarding Baker Act proceedings.
It is suggested that while the "clinic" is not a named party in the
hearings, it could be a real party in interest via policies and other matters.
Therefore, it is suggested that your services as a member:of the Board of Directors
of the Guidance Clinic may be inconsistent with Canon 5 B(l). The Committee adheres
to its opinion dated January 16, 1973.
The Committee appreciates the opportunity to be of service.
