JDS to push on with E&Y tribunal

JDS to push on with E&Y tribunal

Joint Disciplinary Scheme keeps heat on E&Y as case ends, with push for tribunal date

The Accountants’ Joint Disciplinary Scheme will push for a
tribunal date against Ernst & Young following the end of the firm’s
involvement in the Equitable Life trial.

Chris Dickson, executive counsel of the JDS, has told
Accountancy Age that he would ‘go and get some dates for the tribunal’,
having laid complaints against Ernst & Young for its work on the audit of
Equitable Life.

The JDS has waited until the end of the Equitable Life court
case before proceeding with its own plans.

Dickson recently had his contract extended at the JDS until
2007, as it still has a number of cases to deal with before its work is
completely taken over by the disciplinary body of the Financial Reporting
Council.
