MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

Per Curiam.

Ryan Patrick Avery was admitted to practice by this Court in 2011 and lists a business address in Milford, Massachusetts with the Office of Court Administration. Avery now seeks leave to resign from the New York bar for nondisciplinary reasons (see Rules for Attorney Disciplinary Matters [22 NYCRR] § 1240.22 [a]). The Attorney Grievance Committee for the Third Judicial Department (hereinafter AGC) advises that it does not oppose Avery's application.

Upon reading Avery's affidavit sworn to July 30, 2018 and filed August 10, 2018, and upon reading the September 7, 2018 correspondence in response by the Chief Attorney for AGC, and having determined that Avery is eligible to resign for nondisciplinary reasons, we grant his application and accept his resignation.

Egan Jr., J.P., Lynch, Devine, Mulvey and Aarons, JJ., concur.
