Newell-Austin v Solicitors Regulation Authority

Solicitor – Disciplinary proceedings. The Administrative Court dismissed the appellant's appeal against the decision of the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal, striking her off the roll of solicitors and ordering her to pay the costs of the respondent Solicitors Regulation Authority. The tribunal had not been wrong in its factual findings as to the appellant's lack of integrity and had plainly taken account of the appellant's state of knowledge, nor had it erred in having found that she had deliberately and consciously misled the respondent.
