Year 2, week 2: CopyCat

Before I could even say plot, never mind try and implement one, OldSmoothie announced today that TheVamp would be acting as his junior in the libel case involving BigMouth.  Only the most high profile case to come through the doors of chambers in years and it’s snatched from under my admittedly greedy little nose.  Of course, their problem is that neither of them has ever done any libel law in their lives.  My problem is that neither have I.  The difference is that they don’t know that. 

With that in mind, I popped over to the library and fished out on the computer a couple of random articles on libel law.  I made sure they were unrelated to the issues in this actual case so that no-one will be looking them up again.  I then copied and pasted them and changed the real author’s name for my own.  Dastardly, I know, but I did not intend to publish it any further than to one ignorant and pompous personal injury QC, a certain OldSmoothie.  Which I duly did in an email suggesting that he might find these articles useful.

I await to see if he bites.
