MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Ira Genberg was admitted to practice by this Court in 2008 and lists a business address in Atlanta, Georgia with the Office of Court Administration. Genberg now seeks leave to resign from the New York bar for nondisciplinary reasons (see Rules for Attorney Disciplinary Matters [22 NYCRR] § 1240.22 [a]).

Upon reading Genberg's affidavit sworn to July 2, 2018 and filed July 13, 2018, and upon reading the July 31, 2018 correspondence in response by the Chief Attorney for AGC, and having determined that Genberg is eligible to resign for nondisciplinary reasons, we grant his application and accept his resignation.
Lynch, J.P., Clark, Mulvey, Aarons and Rumsey, JJ., concur.
