It has been a good week for:

Crusading journalist David Jessel, who successfully defended a libel action against Channel Four's Trial & Error. Former Detective Inspector Trevor Gladding was suing Jessel for accusing him of perverting the course of justice.

Winchester solicitors White & Bowker, who are patting themselves on the back after having the stunningly clever idea of using the voice of Lois Lane on their web site to entice accident victims. In this cynical age it is nice to know at least some lawyers really believe superhero sidekicks exist.

Kingsley Napley solicitor Michael Caplin, who led the successful team of lawyers which halted the extradition of former Chilean dictator General Augusto Pinochet from his hospital bed in London to Spain where he faces charges over human rights abuses.
