Solicitor Disciplinary proceedings. The solicitor had been struck off the roll by the Solicitors' Disciplinary Tribunal. On appeal, it was held that there had been documentation before the tribunal which supported the solicitor's case, contrary to the tribunal's assertion that no such evidence had been before it. As to the penalty, sufficient protection for the public and the reputation of the profession would be provided by the new measures, together with conditions that the solicitor not practice on her own account, that she not practice in the area of conveyancing, and that she undergo an annual medical examination concerning depression.
