Solicitors Regulation Authority v Spector; Solicitors Regulation Authority v Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal

Solicitor – Disciplinary proceedings. The Divisional Court allowed the Solicitors Regulation Authority's appeal against the decision of the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal (the SDT), granting an anonymity order against a solicitor found guilty of one of seven offences, which was considered a minor matter and at the lowest level. The SDT's decision had been contrary to principle and it had also not been one which it could rationally have made on the facts of the case. However, the SDT's decision, refusing the solicitor his costs against the SRA, was upheld.
