Margate City, NJ asked in Criminal Law and Health Care Law for New Jersey

Q: Respectfully I request help with a question about the problem I have with a conflict of interest with probation officer.

As pursuant to : 42 NJ Super 495, 503, 127 A.2d 190 (APP. DIV. 1956) An actual conflict of interest is not required, rather a potential for conflict is sufficient. A few years ago, before my officer was a probation officer was an officer of the courts, she was my Jewish Family Services social worker. At that time, she was privy to confidential information about my medical, mental health and drug histories. Is there anything I can do?
