I wrote a blog article recently about a case involving the PRA Group. The blog itself was based upon two important sources of information, the first was Counsels note of the Judgment, which was produced contemporaneously during the handing down of Judgment, and the second source was from the client who was in Court.
To the best of my knowledge, the information which i posted was accurate and correct and reflected the case and its outcome. I have spoken to Counsel about this matter again and he has confirmed that my account on the blog was correct.
However, i have removed this blog entry because i acknowledge that the article did contain words which were not appropriate for me to use. I accept that i failed to achieve the high standard which i set for myself and on this occasion i fell short. I am sorry for any offence this article may have caused.
I will however continue to blog about the cases i am involved in, and i will report judgments which i am provided. Justice far too often depends on having deep pockets to be able to afford a top lawyer, a top barrister, and i know that some people have found this blog useful, indeed i have been told directly by people that this blog has helped them defend their own cases and has given them important insights into the legal issues in their cases. Moreover, in my view it is important to give Defendants a level playing field, or at least as level as can be, and this can only be achieved if people who have access to the information on consumer credit cases share it.
So going forward, i will be posting cases, i have set up a consumer credit tab which i will use to post all of the judgments i get, and i will use this main section of the blog for my day to day rants about poor service, or disputes i have or how poor my football team is playing etc.
Once again, i am sorry if my comments on my now deleted blog about the PRA Group caused any offence.
