Davenport Lyons Hearing at the Solicitors Disciplinary Hearing

Date is set for 31 May 2011

The hearing of the disciplinary proceedings against Davenport Lyons has been listed by the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal for 7 days commencing 31 May 2011. I or XXXXX will inform you of the outcome after the hearing.

Further investigations are continuing in relation to the pending
disciplinary proceedings against ACS(LAW) and I or XXXXX will
inform you when the matter is lodged and issued by the SDT.

The above is an email from the SRA confirming the date has been set for the hearing of the Davenport Lyons duo Dave Gore and Brian Miller.

Davenport Lyons are the Law firm that pioneered the hated “Speculative Invoicing” actions that served notice on suspected file sharers and threatened them with legal action unless they paid up £500 – £1000.  Problem was that their hit rate of identifying people was very hit and miss.

When ACS:LAW took over this kind of action it was strongly rejected by ACS:LAW that they had ANY connection with Davenport Lyons such was the strength of this denial that a Solicitor had to settle out of Court for even suggesting it

Since then however it has been learnt that not only did ACS:LAW take on the scheme from Davenport Lyons but that members of Brian Millers family were involved with helping them, his Wife Caroline even helping Andrew Crossley in a small office at his home.  Not that Crossley appreciated the work from Davenport Lyons, referring to them as “a bit rubbish” and “arrogant”

This hearing is great news for all those innocent people targeted by this faulty scheme, and we look forward to the outcome of the hearing,  knowing that Andrew Crossley is also heading towards a similar hearing in the near future.  It is ironic that Miller, Gore and soon Crossley will have their day in “Court” something they have long denied the people they “Bully and harass”.

About Hickster

I am one of the many innocent people who have been accused of file sharing by Copyright Trolls, my letter came from the now infamous ACS:LAW, but they have now been emulated by many more using the same system. Their ruse is simple, Send out letters of claim with NO Real evidence beyond an IP address that they claim was captured using a frowned upon hack of Shareaza. My REAL opinion of these companies turned when they started sending out Pornography claims, THAT is what I find most disturbing. People who HAVE to pay up without the option of having their day in Court. THAT is NOT Justice. Why can't they just go to Court? because the Lawyers, pitch the price of paying the "Compensation" at about the same rate as hiring a lawyer to fight it. Things have changed in the last 8 years though. I would advise people to read the "Speculative Invoicing Handbook Part 2", research these people yourselves, and find me at Slyck Forums, or on Twitter. Do NOT Worry, Stand Strong
