This week, it was revealed that an inquiry found former High Court judge Dyson Heydon sexually harassed six judges' associates. He denies this.

A statement by his lawyers criticised the inquiry on the grounds that it was conducted by a public servant and not by a lawyer.  

Amazing. To anyone but a lawyer, the idea that only a lawyer should investigate misconduct by another lawyer is laughable. Especially when the lawyer concerned had been one of the most senior judges in the country.
