The Magistrate's Blog (2005-2012)

This blog has migrated to www.magistratesblog.blogspot.co.uk This blog is anonymous, and Bystander's views are his and his alone. Where his views differ from the letter of the law, he will enforce the letter of the law because that is what he has sworn to do. If you think that you can identify a particular case from one of the posts you are wrong. Enough facts are changed to preserve the truth of the tale but to disguise its exact source.

The blog is written by a team, who may or may not be JPs, but all of whom are interested in the Magistrates' Courts.

Scandal! Lawyer Represents Client - Takes Fee

Even by the standards of the Daily Mail, this is a good'un.
There is really no story here at all other than a nudge-nudge implying that this solicitor is creaming off public funds to represent an unpopular prisoner.
Apparently he lives in a "£400,000 semi" in Crouch End, which is a pretty modest gaff for the area.
