Complainant Name:
A lawyer

Clauses Noted: 1, 3, 5

Publication: Kidderminster Shuttle

Complaint:
A lawyer from Worcester complained that an article on a Disciplinary Tribunal in which she was involved contained major inaccuracies, including the wrong outcome. This gave the impression that the complainant was “struck off” when in fact she had won her case.

Resolution:
The complaint was resolved when the newspaper – which acknowledged the errors in the report which originally came from a news agency – removed the offending article from its website and swiftly published a correction and apology.

Report: 67
