Justin Abbott disqualified for two years for allegedly assaulting steward Paul Zimmerman has successfully applied to the Supreme Court to have the DQ set aside on the basis that there was apprehended bias due to the chief steward's involvement .......the judge set aside the decision and ordered a new hearing before a different panel of stewards.
