“A Bar Standards Board spokesperson said:

‘The administrative court has today handed down judgment in Leathley, Mehey, Hayes v Visitors to the Inns of Court: three judicial review applications which raised issues arising from the various anomalies revealed in 2011 in relation to the Council of the Inns of Courts’ panel member appointment processes. We are pleased that the court found all but two of the specific challenges made by the Claimants to be totally without merit and refused the applications on the two issues it considered were arguable. The judgment confirms the Bar Standard’s Board’s original view: that most of the historic anomalies, while a matter of great concern to us, did not affect the validity of the findings made in the cases that were potentially affected.'”
