Agencies are barred from using a partner in a law firm as an advocate in a contested matter and another partner from the same law firm as an advisor to the decision maker in the same matter.

“We hold that when a partner in a law firm represents a department within a city at an advisory arbitration regarding a personnel matter, and when the city’s decisionmaking body later reviews that arbitrator’s award for confirmation or  rejection, the principles of due process prohibit the decision maker from being advised on the matter by a different partner from the same law firm.”

Sabey v. City of Pomona, California Court of Appeal, Second District, Div. Two, case no.  B239916, filed April 16, 2013
