THE LAW Society could face a u50,000 bill after the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal threw out a misconduct case against an assistant solicitor.The tribunal took the unusual step of ordering the society to pay costs after accepting a submission of no case to answer during the hearing.Michael Carroll, of Wilson & Co, was cleared after a four-day hearing of misleading his clients and misleading his former employer Enrico Lombardi, of Pegden & Dubow.Arnold Rosen, Carroll's solicitor, who instructed Ronald Thwaites QC, estimates that costs could be in the region of u50,000. He says the case should never have been fought.A spokeswoman for the bureau says the society was unsuccessful in less than two per cent of tribunal hearings last year. She says that no bill has yet been submitted.The papers are considered by bureau staff, the Adjudication and Appeals Committee and by the tribunal itself before a hearing takes place, she adds.
