It is with much sadness that I read the attached link which details the tragic outcome of Mr Jackson QC who failed in his well justified attempt to screw some much needed cash from the council.
It's about time local governments started to pay out in cases such as these when the individual is so clearly right

The poor man will likely go hungry this winter now. Maybe a collection should be organised.

Grit would have been ok, but salting would be very dangerous for lawyers, everybody knows, if yer put salt on a lawyers tail they die.
Sorry Mr Davaar.

This sort of thing gets ordinary greedy opportunists a bad name. I wonder what his logic was for arriving at the nice round figure of 50K ?

This has to be one of the worst miscarriages of justice I have ever come across. In fact it brought me to tears.

Bet this will cost him more than he bargained for.

Why would anyone retain him now if he couldn't even get his own personal case proven.
