QC in the clear after cheeky gag.

After reading on Legal Cheek that employed barrister Steven Pidcock had been disciplined by the Bar Standards Board (BSB) for mistreating his pupil, Leeds-based silk Simon Myerson QC posted the following comment.


As you can see, fellow Legal Cheek reader Pidcock wasn’t impressed.


Happily for lovers of school-yard humour, Myerson reports this week that the BSB has decided that he has no case to answer.


When contacted by Legal Cheek this morning, a BSB spokesperson said: “We don’t comment on individual cases unless a disciplinary tribunal has been scheduled.”

The full exchange can be found in this thread of comments.
