Court of Appeal Decision

http://www.judiciary.gov.uk/judgments/national-westminster-bank-plc-v-lucas-others/
It will take me some time to read through and understand the 43 page Judgement. One paragraph that caught my eye for obvious reasons follows Point 71 Page 28/43
 I needed to check that I had not done Ms Dux a disservice earlier and I am satisfied that, whilst the Judgement indicates the Judge's assumption that a 'significant number .. genuine and well founded'  they did not say that these claims would be 'successful' 
On a happier note, it would appear that part of the Trust's Appeal was successful !
They didn't get it all their own way ! To be continued !

Addendum 16th December 21.21 pm GMT

It appears that I was wrong and Ms Dux was right in her reportage of what the Judge had said at the appeal hearing. I will blog more on this tomorrow ! Apologies for any misunderstanding !

  1. Seeing as all the money has already been earmarked for the various members of the lawyering fraternity, they obviously need to draw this matter to a conclusion and move on to the next golden fleece.

    Got a few bob in a Trust Fund? It could be you.

  2. Meanwhile the silence from the clever folks continues to echo through the halls of Academia.

    " The focus of our project is to secure a central source of such more questioning accounts, the blogging activity of a woman known as Anna Raccoon and the correspondence and list of contacts upon which it is based. Anna Raccoon is a former resident of Duncroft residential School from whence initial allegations against Savile emanate. Anna has terminal cancer and, as a result, her important counter-hegemonic account risks being lost. The circumstances of Anna’s illness prompted a successful bid to a call from the ESRC for ‘Urgent’ research. "
