Calendar Date:  June 28, 2021

Frederick Thomas Mendenhall was admitted to practice by this Court in 2017 and lists a business address in Albuquerque, New Mexico with the Office of Court Administration.  Mendenhall 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 Mendenhall's application.
