Solicitor Disciplinary proceedings. The Administrative Court, in dismissing a solicitor's appeal against two decisions of the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal (the SDT), held, inter alia, that the SDT had been entitled to come to the conclusions it had reached. The SDT's first decision that allegations of misconduct had been proved was made in the solicitor's absence and in its second decision, the SDT refused a re-hearing.
