Whether the Bar Standards Board had acted contrary to ECHR, art 14 in carrying out its disciplinary proceedings against the appellant


Re: O’Connor v Bar Standards Board [2016] EWCA Civ 775

The appellant, a barrister, appealed against a decision dismissing her claim for damages against the respondent board on the ground that the court had failed to grant an extension of time under the Human Rights Act 1998,  s 7(5)(b) and therefore breached her right to a fair trial ECHR, art 14, read in conjunction with art 6.

Hugh Southey QC was involved in this case.
