The complainant alleged that three lawyers involved in his case had agreed on a settlement without his approval and that the judge did not take any action against the lawyers for that. The complaint about the three lawyers was also made to the local authorities and to the Law Society. The police concluded their investigation without laying any criminal charges, and the Law Society recommended that the lawyers be more careful in the future.

The complainant was advised that it is not for the judge to side with one party and pursue various actions on a mere allegation, and that the judge would not be under investigation for misconduct from the evidence provided. Additionally, the complaint falls outside of the Council’s mandate as it primarily concerns the actions of the lawyers. The matter was closed.
