The trial of Ludovic Bagman occurred before the Council of Magical Law at some point after Lord Voldemort's first downfall.

The Trial

Ludo Bagman was brought to the Ministry of Magic for a trial when he was accused of having passed information to Lord Voldemort. He had given information to Augustus Rookwood who worked in the Department of Mysteries and was a friend of Ludo's father. Bagman was unaware that Rookwood was a Death Eater and in the end, he was cleared of all charges due to being a popular Quidditch player and after this, was never again accused of allegiance with Death Eaters. His being cleared did not sit well with Crouch.[1]
