Year 2, week 5: JudgeJewellery

The robing room was alight with gossip this morning when I went off to court.  There’s a vicious rumour going around about one of the district judges in the south of England.  I can’t be more specific as to where she’s based as it’d be pretty easy to identify her but for present purposes I […]

Year 2, week 5: ManTrap

So I was chatting through the BigMouth case with my friend Claire on Saturday evening and it caused a little disruption when she heard that TheVamp was also instructed in the same case.  ‘What?  The same woman who was prepared to sleep with you as part of a settlement deal?’ Being a simple -minded soul […]

Year 2, week 4: an apple short

So today I had to call up BigMouth and get a bit more sense out of him than that which OldSmoothie managed yesterday.  I think he was just embarrassed for his old friend and didn’t want to explore the whole conspiracy story in too much detail. ‘So what sort of conspiracy do you suspect?’ I […]

Year 2, week 4: ConspiracyTheories

‘It’s all a conspiracy,’ boomed BigMouth as he stomped into OldSmoothie’s room for a conference. ‘Yeh right.  Last bastion of the desperate or insane those conspiracy theories if you ask me.’ I thought.  Thankfully, they didn’t ask. ‘I wouldn’t put anything past RedTop,’ said OldSmoothie sympathetically.  ‘What sort of conspiracy were you thinking?’ purred TheVamp.  […]

Year 2, week 4: SueOrTrue

‘Of course he’ll sue’, said OldSmoothie as we sat around in conference discussing RedTop’s letter.  ‘But nobody believes what the papers say any longer,’ TheVamp piped up. ‘Why would he take the risk with all those costs, even if it’s all made up?’ ‘Tory MPs are the very last of a breed who still cling […]

Year 2, week 4: DoubleDare

‘It’s all a bit of a dîner de dog if you ask me’ was ClichéClanger’s first remark after he’d faxed through RedTop’s response. The letter had basically said, ‘Dear ClichéClanger, Your client is a vain, arrogant and nasty man.  You know that as much as we do.  If you want a fight we look forward […]

Year 2, week 4: Ernest

After all the excitement of getting onto BigMouth’s case in the last week or two I was brought crashing down to earth with a bang today as I was sent off to Ilford County Court to fight a car case worth all of £350.  He said, you said, they said.  They were all at it.  […]

Year 2, week 3: RobingRoomKiss

Well, a great bit of gossip today.  I haven’t mentioned them since the tenancy decision but both TopFirst and ThirdSix have both ended up squatting in chambers.  That’s not some kind of weird yoga position but instead means that they can continue to ply their trade from here until they find somewhere else.  Or until […]

Year 2, week 3: WishYouWereHere

Got a postcard from TheBoss today.  Well, it didn’t actually say it was from him.  Kind of Shawshank Redemption style.  All a but over-dramatic and forced on the mysterious front which shows that he’s probably still unravelling after the shock of the hearing.  Thankfully, anyway, there was humour rather than menace in its tone.  It […]

Year 2, week 3: LetterofClaim

So TheVamp and I drafted a letter of claim to the publishers of RedTop today.  Basically, “Dear RedTop, That was very naughty of you to have been so rude about our client.  We know he’s an obnoxious, arrogant so and so of the worst kind but really, honestly, he did not and we repeat, did […]
