Optometrist cleared

Ian Stern QC instructed by Ella Power from the legal department of the Association of Optometrist, represented a registrant who was alleged to have dishonestly claimed about £35,000 from her employer over four years. Following a submission of no case to answer on the registrant’s behalf by Ian, the panel found that – “The Council’s evidence was insufficient, contradictory and manifestly unreliable at its highest, no reasonable committee could find allegation proved”. The case was therefore dismissed.
