Regulatory barrister at Trinity Chambers, Ros Scott Bell  prepared a detailed analysis regarding the prosecution of a car dealership that she recently dealt with on behalf of a Local Authority. The article entitled “Dodgy dealers” has been published in the April 2012 edition of the monthly magazine of the Trading Standards Institute, “TS Today”.

The case involved the successful application of the Enterprise Act and criminal proceedings resulting in a substantial successful costs order in favour of the Local Authority. 

The feature was part of the Trading Standards Institute’s specialist “Auto” Issue.
