Barristers to face new standard of proof in disciplinary cases

first_imgThe Legal Services Board (LSB) has granted permission for the bar regulator to change the standard of proof applied in disciplinary proceedings, a move which could make it easier for barristers to be sanctioned.In a statement today, LSB chief executive Neil Buckley said: ‘We have agreed a rule change application from the BSB, which brings their approach on assessing professional misconduct into line with that adopted by other professional regulators.’In November last year, the BSB agreed to lower the standard of proof, pending LSB approval, downgrading it from the criminal standard to the civil standard.Currently the BSB and the cases it brings before the Bar Tribunal and Adjudication Service, rely on the criminal standard of proof; whereby wrongdoing has to be proved beyond reasonable doubt. Under the new standard, cases will be determined on the balance of probabilities.The change will come into force from March next year.At the time it agreed to the change the BSB stressed that only cases that come to the tribunal after the agreed implementation date will be tried under the new standard, meaning there would be a  ‘crossover period’ under which both standards would be applied.As it stands the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal operates the criminal standard as well but a consultation on shifting to the civil standard closed this week.last_img read more

first_imgMolex has introduced a new line of radio frequency products, BNC RF Connectors and Assemblies. Designed for 8K High-Speed, High Definition TV (HDTV), video equipment and camera manufacturers, these new products yield return loss performance that exceeds SMPTE 2082-1 standards, allowing for future bandwidth expansion without needing to change connector hardware.The new BNC RF connectors solve several customer challenges. They transmit signals up to 12 GHz and feature the best impedance matching available. They allow users to exceed the performance requirements of serial-data transmission for 8K HD televisions and video equipment such as cameras, monitors and switching gear. The higher bandwidth helps carry the higher amounts of data needed for 8K HD video applications, delivering cutting-edge performance and allowing the equipment OEMs to utilize a single video port versus three in the 4K HD video devices. Options for design flexibility include right-angle, vertical and bulkhead PCB configurations.The 12 GHz BNC RF Connectors and Assemblies are available in 75 Ohm impedance, and are backward compatible with 3 GHz 75 Ohm BNC connectors. The major impetus for the new design is the projected demand from users for 8K HDTV products for the broadcast-television market. The Society of Motion Picture Television Engineers is regularly updating its standards for hardware design, meaning constant changes for those within the industry. Molex helps customers stay ahead by unveiling connectors and assemblies that exceed the serial data transmission standards of 8K HDTV, 8K HD video and various broadcast applications.

first_img Vince McKee Related TopicsHolly HolmUFC on Fox 20 CHICAGO, IL – Those who called Holly Holm a fluke after her major upset win over Ronda Rousey, may have more ammunition to have done so as she lost again tonight. Holm is now 0-2 since beating Rousey after her upset loss tonight to Valentina Shevchenko by 49-46 Unanimous decision. Valentina Shevchenko (12-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC) took apart the ex-champ Holly Holm (10-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) to earn a unanimous decision.

Over the third and fourth rounds Holm would remain stagnant in her approach and this allowed the crafty Shevchenko to repeat her successful formula. “She’s newer in the UFC, but I knew I had my hands full with this fight,” Holm said afterward. “When they offered it to me, I didn’t want to act like I didn’t want to take it. I knew it was a really big challenge. What can you do? I know it was a competitive fight, and I take nothing away from her. I was taught all the right things. My coaches teach me everything. My performance was not right tonight.”Shevchenko had this to say after the big win, “It’s very important in my career,” she said. “My strategy was to do everything I know, to put all my heart, all my power, everything that I learned in more than 20 years in martial arts.
