Quote of the week

“I knew the deputy court judge was a Freemason because we are in the same lodge, but the idea that I would dismiss an appeal [against his ruling] because he was a fellow member of my lodge is ridiculous.”

– Lord Millett on a European case where a litigant is attempting to “upset a will” after Millett refused the litigant’s appeal against the original judge’s decision. The deceased and the solicitor representing the litigant’s opponent are also Masons.
