Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Third Department, New York.

IN RE: Kevin A. CONINE, a Suspended Attorney and Counselor-at-Law. Committee on Professional Standards, Petitioner; Kevin A. Conine, Respondent.

Decided: September 25, 1998

Before MIKOLL, J.P., and CREW, WHITE, YESAWICH and GRAFFEO, JJ. Mark S. Ochs,Committee on Professional Standards, Albany, for petitioner. Richard H. Farley, Delhi, for respondent.

Respondent was suspended from practice for a period of two years, effective April 1992 (Matter of Conine, 182 A.D.2d 913, 582 N.Y.S.2d 519).  He now applies for reinstatement to practice.   Petitioner, the Committee on Professional Standards, opposes the application.

Because we conclude that respondent has not shown by clear and convincing evidence that he possesses the character and general fitness to resume the practice of law (see, 22 NYCRR 806.12[b] ), we deny the application for reinstatement.

ORDERED that respondent's application for reinstatement is denied.

PER CURIAM.
