Lee To Appeal Snooker Ban

Hot on the heels of my news round-up yesterday as I pondered the likelihood of a possible appeal by Stephen Lee, the WPBSA has today confirmed that it has received notice of an appeal from Lee’s solicitors.

Aside from the fact that Lee now has legal representation, having been unrepresented at the last hearing, perhaps the most interesting point to draw is that Lee will be appealing against both the verdict itself, as well as the sanction made against him. Effectively then, this amounts to the complete denial as to all aspects of the findings made by Adam Lewis QC.

The official WPBSA statement reads as follows:

The WPBSA has received notice of appeal from solicitors representing Stephen Lee. He is appealing against the finding of the tribunal, the sanction and the costs awarded. The WPBSA has asked Sport Resolutions UK to manage the appeal process and appoint an independent QC to chair the Appeals Committee.
