Solicitors Regulation Authority v Libby

Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal failed to address respondent's carelessness – . The Divisional Court partially allowed the appellant Solicitors Regulation Authority's appeal against the decision of the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal, dismissing allegations against the respondent, for failure to address whether the respondent's carelessness breached the requirement to behave in a way that maintained the public trust in solicitors and the provision of public services, notwithstanding the absence of any dishonesty or any lack of integrity. It also set aside the tribunal's cost order against the respondent, as he had successfully resisted all the allegations.
