PRESIDING JUSTICE GROMETER delivered the opinion of the court:
Peter J. Wright filed a petition for leave to appeal to this court (see 210 Ill. 2d R. 306)
following the trial court's partial grant of a motion to disqualify his counsel brought by The Northern
Trust Company, in its capacity as trustee of the Agnes H. Wright Trust (dated December 17, 1981,
as amended and restated). Peter contends that the trial court abused its discretion in granting the
motion. We disagree and therefore affirm.
