A father and son suspended from the Freemasons have lost a legal challenge against the organisation.
Stewart Hood, 67, and his son Brian, 48, from Randalstown, had tried to sue after they were suspended from their lodge in Antrim.
It followed a row over a disputed proposal to sell its Northern Ireland headquarters in Belfast.
They had claimed disciplinary rules were not properly followed.
The Hoods were suspended in 2009 on a charge of “unmasonic conduct”.
They were alleged to have made discourteous and disparaging remarks against senior members within their area.
