MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Mark Douglas Dillon was admitted to practice by this Court in 1994 and lists a business address in Phoenix, Arizona with the Office of Court Administration. Dillon 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 Dillon's affidavit sworn to September 10, 2018 and filed September 17, 2018, and upon reading the November 27, 2018 correspondence in response by the Chief Attorney for AGC, and having determined that Dillon is eligible to resign for nondisciplinary reasons, we grant his application and accept his resignation.
Garry, P.J., Devine, Clark, Aarons and Rumsey, JJ., concur.
