Justin Abbott was in February disqualified for two-years by Racing Queensland after an inquiry found him guilty of assaulting stipendiary steward Paul Zimmerman the month before.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court of Queensland quashed and set aside the board’s decision and ordered that the allegation be heard by a different panel of stewards.
