  • Good to see that Gloster J wasn't intimidated by the guy in sunnies!

  • This case raises questions about the British legal system.

    It's accepted that courts should decide cases on the evidence presented within the four walls - though doubtful that it qualifies as part of our unwritten constitution.

    But to ignore the world outside the sealed window?

    Like an investment banker's sealed module.. misdirected intelligence.. destined to self destruct?

    Mrs Justice Gloster came across as a v*****n in a mystifying world.

    All you need to know about Mr A and Mr B is adequately explained in the daily press - and, if you only trust lawyers, buttressed by numerous cases.

  • Oh dear! It would be interesting to learn what selection criteria Addleshaws use when offering CFA to clients. Surely client affordability should be in there somewhere. I can almost smell the consulting assignments from here (New Zealand)

  • Is there anyway I could get a copy of the transcripts of the trial? I would very much like to read Sumption's opening and closing speech.

  • AG is a fantastic firm with a stella reputation. This tiny glitch isn't going to affect them at all, and I hope that they will pursue their miserable critics through the courts.

  • AG should be applauded for their commitment to pro bono. Shame they could not have found a more worthy cause.

  • Fantastic comments on this article. I am especially enjoying the disgruntled ones from AG insiders spilling the beans on the details of the CFA. As for Anonymous at 2-Sep-2012 6:55 pm, AKA AG PR team, I am afraid that it is not credible to claim this is a "tiny glitch", or that AG is going to sue their critics. Also, try and spell "stellar" correctly. Overall, PR FAIL, but quite amusingly done.

  • Maybe they did mean Stella as plainly they must have had their fill when discussing the benefits of a CFA to the firm for this case.

  • The CFA was not "No win - No fee" but "No win - Lower fee" Not so silly silly.
