Update: Roy Meadow



Prof Sir Roy Meadow, the paediatrician whose statistical error in the Sally Clark murder case led to her wrongful conviction, was not guilty of serious professional misconduct, the [UK] Court of Appeal has confirmed. But the court allowed an appeal by the General Medical Council against a High Court ruling that experts who give evidence in court are immune from disciplinary proceedings initiated by anybody but the trial judge.

(Joshua Rozenberg, "Both sides welcome Meadow ruling", Telegraph, 27 Oct.) (h/t F.R.). Also: Independent; Times; BBC. Previously: Mar. 5 and links therein.
