Mark Block, the Norwich attorney representing accountant F. Robert LaSaracina in several civil cases alleging fraud and default on LaSaracina's part, is asking the Superior Court for permission to withdraw as counsel, citing a potential claim that he has a conflict of interest.
In motions filed Thursday, Block seeks to withdraw from nearly a half-dozen cases in which he is representing LaSaracina and LaSaracina's business, F. Robert LaSaracina, CPA, LLC. The cases include two that stem from LaSaracina's alleged mishandling of a Norwich estate while serving as its trustee. In one, a conservator for one of the estate's beneficiaries accuses LaSaracina of malpractice and in the other LaSaracina is appealing a probate court judge's ruling that LaSaracina owes the estate $4.2 million.
Contacted Friday, Block indicated he had no comment on his request to withdraw.
