Complaints against judge dismissed

The complaints against former Supreme Court judge Bill Wilson have been officially dismissed.

Justice Wilson left the Supreme Court last Friday.

It follows the launching of a Judicial Conduct inquiry after complaints about Justice Wilson's financial relationships with a lawyer who argued a case before him.

The Judicial Conduct Commissioner, Sir David Gascoigne, says rules state he must dismiss a complaint if the person concerned is no longer a judge.

As Mr Wilson is now no longer a judge, the complaints are dismissed.
