Leigh Day judgment: Martyn Day not ‘credible or convincing’, says tribunal member

first_imgThe Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal today published the long-awaited judgment on human rights firm Leigh Day and three of its lawyers.In a 214-page ruling, the tribunal outlines the reasons for clearing senior partner Martyn Day and solicitors Sapna Malik and Anna Crowther of all charges. The three had been charged with misconduct relating to their handling of historic allegations of torture and unlawful killing by British soldiers in Iraq.The tribunal found that Day, Malik and Crowther actively investigated regulatory requirements and tried to act in accordance with the rules.The judgment adds: ‘They were open in evidence about things they did, and why they did them, and were prepared to acknowledge where they would, with hindsight, have done things differently. ‘The tribunal rejected the [SRA’s] general contention that [they] were the kind of people who put financial advantage above professional duty.’But the judgment also reveals for the first time the level of doubt expressed by Richard Hegarty, a solicitor member of the three-person panel. Hegarty did not find Martyn Day to be a ‘credible, honest or convincing witness’, and on numerous occasions Day was said to have ‘failed to give clear and succinct answers to straightforward questions’.Hegarty found Malik far more credible, saying she came across as a solicitor ‘intent on fighting for her clients and trying, but at times not succeeding, in staying within her professional rules’.On Crowther, who was alleged to have destroyed a key document linking Iraqi clients with insurgent forces, Hegarty finds it ‘unfortunate’ that she changed the evidence given at interview and he notes her answers ‘did not sit well’ with the lawyers’ defence.The SRA, which brought the prosecution, has 21 days from the conclusion of the case – including the costs hearing – to decide whether to bring an appeal. A hearing to determine costs will be arranged at the earliest opportunity 35 days after publication.An SRA spokesperson said: ‘We will be reviewing the judgment in detail and considering next steps.’The firm, senior partner Martyn Day, equity partner Sapna Malik and solicitor Anna Crowther had denied 19 charges. The case took seven weeks to conclude, with members of the tribunal spending a week considering their decision.Leigh Day’s costs were said to be £7m earlier in this hearing, while the SRA’s costs will also run to seven figures. Any adverse costs order against the SRA would leave the profession footing the bill for the prosecution.last_img read more

American Young, Bush Hall, London live review

first_imgSinger-songwriters Kristy Osmusson and Jon Stone – AKA American Young – have been rapidly gaining in popularity over here since the release of their first album, AY, back in 2016. They’ve become a regular fixture at many festivals in the UK country scene, including Nashville Meets London, C2C: Country to Country and Buckle & Boots, which they headlined earlier this year. Now, following the release of their latest EP Soundtrack Of Your Life, they’re back for a short tour which kicked off last night at Bush Hall in London.Accompanied by their two band members, Kristy and Jon opened their set with American Dream, from their debut album. Right from the off they showed off their incredible musicianship, with Kristy in particular shining on the atmospheric, fiddle-led intro as her fingers flew over the instrument’s neck. Jon encouraged the crowd to clap along to the sharp, driving rhythm before he and Kristy began to sing, and their harmonies were on point as usual. It was a great start to the show and definitely set the bar for the next hour and 40 minutes.Throughout the set the band drew on material from both their album and the new EP, as well as mixing in several covers. These ran the gamut from the traditional Cotton-Eyed Joe (which they paired with a soaring acoustic rendition of Love Is War) to a mash-up of the lush, heartstring-tugging Die Another Day with the Disney classic Can You Feel The Love Tonight, via a jazzy take on Just The Two Of Us and Jon’s funky, powerful rendition of the Rolling Stones’ Beast Of Burden. For me the standouts were the pair’s version of Keith Whitley’s When You Say Nothing At All, which featured a simple arrangement and gorgeous vocals that made the song incredibly moving, and a shouldn’t-work-but-did sparse spin on The Thunder Rolls and The Boys Of Summer, which saw Kristy and Jon rocking out with their band in a fiery and powerful performance.Whilst the diverse selection of covers showed off the duo’s versatility, their original material was where they really shone for me. Whether it was the emotional, piano-led Better On You or a lively, playful track like Point Of View or Something To You, which undercut its bright melody with bittersweet lyrics, their effortless vocals were absolutely stellar and they had fantastic chemistry throughout, frequently cracking jokes and telling stories. I also liked that both Kristy and Jon got their chances to stand out – Kristy on the quickfire Cheater, Cheater (which she wrote for Joey + Rory) where her sweet vocals counterbalanced the sassy lyrics, and Jon on a heartfelt rendition of A Woman Like You that highlighted the edge and depth in his voice.I was also really impressed with the new material, particularly the laid-back, rock-influenced Falling Star, which saw Kristy pacing the stage as she jammed with the band. Seminole Wind, meanwhile, is rapidly becoming a fan favourite (as evidenced by the numerous requests from the audience) with its slow, lingering intro, dramatic storytelling, thumping rhythm and vivid imagery. It showed that the band are willing to experiment and push themselves, and I’m keen to see where this takes them on their next record.Kristy and Jon closed the main part of their set with Soundtrack Of Your Life, the title track from their new EP. For me it summed up everything I loved about their performance – tons of energy, hopeful lyrics packed full of details and a joyous singalong chorus. Kristy could be seen holding her bow aloft in triumph as the song drew to a close and the crowd responded with thunderous applause.After loud demands for an encore, the band returned to the stage to perform their final three songs, beginning with Kenny Rogers’ The Gambler. Kristy’s spiky fiddle was the perfect accompaniment to Jon’s soulful vocals and I also really liked how they built the layers of instruments, as well as encouraging the audience to join in. They then followed that with a beautiful version of Soldier’s Wife, which saw Kristy hit some huge notes and deliver an incredibly convincing, passionate performance, as well as a stunning a capella section at the end. Finally, they finished on Wake Me Up, which had the crowd singing and dancing along to the stomping rhythm and twangy guitars before rattling to the finish at breakneck speed.Overall I came away feeling really impressed by American Young. The connection between Kristy and Jon on stage is absolutely electric and they show it off to perfection through their outstanding musicianship and relaxed, easygoing stage presence which makes it incredibly easy for audiences to warm to them. Throw in a high-energy performance which looks like they’re having the time of their lives and those incredible harmonies, and it’s not hard to see why they’re so beloved here in the UK. They get better every time I see them and based on the new music they’re set for even bigger things in the future.Set list: 1. American Dream 2. Better On You 3. Point Of View 4.

Over £4000 Raised by Haugh of Urr to Highland Show and Back Bike Ride

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInCycle for LouiseTravelling to and from the Royal Highland Show 2016 was slightly slower and more challenging for Katie Davidson from Halmyre Farm, Haugh of Urr.This year she challenged herself with cycling the 200 mile round trip to Ingliston and back to raise much needed money for her friend Louise Hartley.Louise, 24, was diagnosed with Hypercalcemic Type, Small Cell Cancer of the Ovary after having a tumour and ovary removed in March. Chemotherapy wasn’t successful in treating this aggressive and rare type of cancer, her family undertook their own research and found immunotherapy was their only hope in helping Louise to fight this horrendous disease.Unfortunately with only 500 known cases of her type of cancer worldwide, immunotherapy isn’t licensed on the NHS. So her family have turned to private health care and her treatments cost £3000 per treatment which she receives every three weeks.Lancashire-based Louise is well known in agriculture through her work as a journalist for the Farmers Guardian and as an enthusiastic member of Holstein Young Breeders and Young Farmers.As well as Cycling for Louise, Katie also judged the dairy calves and showmanship classes on the Sunday morning before making tracks for home.Katie would like to thank everyone who has supported her in raising money to help fund Louise’s treatments, especially Rodger Callander and Jane Armstrong, who each joined her on one leg of the journey.So far she has received over £4000.last_img read more

The neighborhood is in Walled Lake Consolidated School District.In a statement released Friday evening, Superintendent George Heitsch said Farmington Hills Police Department has notified the district of stepped up patrols in the area.“We share this information with you, not to raise anxiety, but as an opportunity to remind our families of the importance of being observant,” Heitsch wrote. “With spring weather approaching, our children will be spending more time outdoors, which is encouraged. Having said this, we must remind our children to report any suspicious behavior promptly to a trusted adult.

Tak hanya itu, penumpang pun bisa padat merayap di dalam gerbong bahkan bergelantungan dekat pintu.Para penumpang juga terkadang nekat memanjat gerbong melalui jendela untuk naik ke atap demi ikut kereta tersebut meski membahayakan nyawanya sendiri. Pedagang asongan pun tak kalah saing untuk menaiki kereta dan menjajakan dagangannya di dalam kereta meski berjejalan denga penumpang lain.Untungnya semakin lama KRL Jabodetabek semakin menjadi lebih baik dari kenyamanan dalam kereta hingga peron di stasiunnya. Fasilitasnya pun seperti toilet, gate atau gerbang dan loket serta mesin pembelian tiket tampak tertata dengan rapi.Tak hanya itu, percayalah, bila Anda ketahuan merokok di peron, maka petugas akan mendatangi dan menegur untuk segera mematikan rokok.

Kereta yang digunakan juga sudah dilengkapi dengan pendingin udara.

Cold Temperatures Passing Through Southcentral

first_imgMeteorologist Rebecca Duell says the NWS issued a Special Weather Statement for cooler temperatures from Wednesday through Friday this week… This drop in the mercury won’t doesn’t necessarily signal the beginning of fall or winter… FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A cold front has been moving through Southcentral Alaska, but the National Weather Service says it’s possible the area will warm up again. Duell: “What we do have right now is a low pressure system that’s moving very slowly, but it’s pretty big, over the Aleutian Islands. So it’s pushing a cold front up towards Southcentral Alaska and that’s what’s going to be moderating our low temperatures over the next few days. So it’s hard to say whether or not this is necessarily the end of the warmer temperatures, because once that front goes through there is the potential that we could get some more above average temperatures, but that’s too far out for us to forecast.” Duell: “For tonight we’re looking at kind of a slow moderation of the low temperatures and we’re going to start to build in a little more cloud cover and that’s what’s going to bring those lows up a little bit more. So 39 last night and then tonight we’re going to have temperatures in the low 40’s, so a few degrees warmer for the lows. And then by tomorrow night we’re looking at temperatures right around 50 for the low.”last_img read more
