Lead Lawyer Suspended From Child Abuse Inquiry

Researching Reform

Whilst Chairs may have come and gone at the now infamous independent inquiry into child sexual abuse, ongoing tensions, arguments and fiascos were always underscored by just one panel member. And now, it seems, the reign of tyranny is over.

Accusations of bullying and riding roughshod over Chairs, as well as routine intimidation is the legacy lead counsel Ben Emmerson leaves behind, after being suspended from the Inquiry yesterday. The suspension takes place amid growing concerns about certain aspects of his leadership within the team he was tasked to manage.

This won’t be the last of it. Emmerson is likely to counter with a robust defence, as lawyers tend to do, and Professor Jay will need to steal herself for what will be an aggressive effort. Still, with Emmerson no longer at the Inquiry, it will be interesting to see if the investigation settles down and starts to function as it should.
