Lawyers on theft charges return to court on October 6
THE FATE OF two female lawyers was in limbo yesterday after the Court of Appeal adjourned their disciplinary hearings until October 6.
Attorneys at law Allison Helen Alexander-Lovell and Joyce Griffith, in separate matters, are accused of withholding thousands of dollars from their clients.
Chairperson of the Disciplinary Committee of the Barbados Bar Association, Marguerite Woodstock-Riley QC, in requesting an adjournment, informed the court yesterday that there had been a matter of procedure that was to be addressed, since neither of the attorneys nor their defence counsel had been sent copies of individual reports pertaining to their cases.
The Court of Appeal, headed by Chief Justice Sir Marston Gibson, acceded to the request and ordered that relevant submissions should be made before July 29. (TS)
