Malins v Solicitors Regulation Authority

Solicitor – Disciplinary proceedings. The Administrative Court allowed the appellant solicitor's appeal against the decision of the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal (the SDT), finding him guilty of dishonesty and acting without integrity. The SDT had found the appellant guilty of serious dishonesty on two charges in which dishonesty had been explicitly eschewed and had never been properly spelt out against him in violation of the basic rule that you had to know you were facing a case of dishonesty.
