Year 2, week 52: vultures

We had an extraordinary chambers meeting this evening called at short notice. The topic was one which is probably being discussed in boardrooms up and down the country. Pretty standard you might think. Except for the fact that the agenda item was actually listed somewhat tactlessly as “How can chambers benefit from the present banking […]

Year 2, week 51: unorthodox

“Well, it’s somewhat unorthodox, but I think it could be done.  But tell me, BabyBarista, isn’t it illegal to try and influence a judge in this way.”  It was BrainWasher voices his concerns about my proposed campaign to bring the judge’s mind around to our way of thinging.”“I don’t think there’s a precedent against it,” […]

Year 2, week 51: BrainWasher

The trial came to an end today.  WhistleBlower was utterly discredited but even so the documents still remain in evidence.  The experts disagree as to whether the wireless technology is affecting people’s minds or not and ultimately it will all come down to the view the judge takes of the evidence.  We apparently have a […]

Year 2, week 51: silence

Well, I’ve heard nothing from TopFirst since our little meeting last week.  I imagine he’s discovered by now the full extent of the set-up and is still trying to think of a way out.  He has until the end of this week, after which the game of chicken ends and he goes down with me.

Year 2, week 51: jellybaby

“So what do you want, you snivelling little creep?” asked TopFirst with all of his usual charm.“Well I wanted to thank you for dropping us both in it with the FSA.”“I don’t think so, my friend. This time you are well and truly going down.”“Which would be funny if it weren’t for the fact that […]

Year 2, week 51: nuclear option

Okay, now I’m really worried. Our witness went AWOL today just when we thought that wasn’t going to happen and then I got another letter from the Bar Standards Board warning me that if I was not prepared for them to hear the complaint made about the alleged insider-dealing then they would have to pass […]

Year 2, week 51: counter-attack

The case started again this morning in earnest and somewhat to our surprise our witness WhistleBlower turned up on time and with no tales of being threatened or hounded off the case. Which immediately made me worry that we had perhaps missed something and sure enough as soon as she started giving evidence the first […]

Year 2, week 50: call my bluff

“Word reaches me that you made me a visit the other day, BabyB.” It was UpTights and she was not here to discuss the wireless case. “Dressed as Bat Man, I hear.”“Er…well…”“Very fetching you looked too in your little boxer shorts,” she added. “That was very naughty of TopFirst. Rest assured that he’s been in […]

Year 2, week 50: another complaint

Well, the big news from last week was that there was another complaint from TopFirst. This time his allegation is that I committed illegal insider trading by buying short on the shares in the wireless company. The strange thing is that rather than making the complaint to the FSA, he instead reported it to the […]

Year 2, week 49: old joke

I was out in the pub last night with OldSmoothie discussing the case and he was slobbering over one of the legal executives who’s been working with us. When she went off to chat to one of her friends he turned to OldSoak who was sitting nearby and received a knowing look. “Out of ten?” […]
