ACS:Law file-sharing claims dropped as firm closes doors for business
Crossley has hidden behind the reluctance of the authorities to act against a solicitor for far too long. I'm sure that if a regular member of the Public had attempted a stunt like this they would have been hurled out of Civils in a fraction of the time Crossley was given to spin the "facts" of his case and would probably have promptly found themselves up before a criminal judge to explain their actions.
For the integrity of the profession as seen from within and the public it is imperative that the SRA investigate fully fairly and without prejudice and if such an investigation uncovers the level of malfeasance some of us anticipate then the SRA must sanction Crossley in the most severe manner possible.
Remember this is a man who mitigated his previous misconduct hearings with a ple of blindness, he now claims injuries to his family and threats of bombs and death yet the met have no records of such behaviour concerning Crossley or anyone at ACS.
The mans credibility is shot and thgus it is imperative that any disciplinary proceedings he faces must establish the extent to which this mans testimony continues to be credible.
