Top Hacking Lawyer Relocating to LA

Mark Lewis, the phone hacking lawyer leading the fight against the Mirror, is off to sunny LA:

Dear All

In perhaps one of the worst kept secrets, I will be leaving the UK on Friday to take up permanent residence in Los Angeles.

I will still be pursuing those cases in the UK and will undoubtedly be back in London on a regular basis re NGN and MGN. I do have cases that will be pursued in the USA.

I will still be available on this email address and my English mobile number. I will forward my US cell phone details next week.

Thank you all for your contacts over the years.

Best regards

Can anyone think of any New York/LA based former tabloid editors who might not appreciate the new arrival on their home-ground?

    After hearing on the radio the problems of those who enjoy bumming in P@kistan, Somalia and Russia over the weekend they had on the World Service
    problems with bumming in the Commonwealth, with a special on Jamaica coming soon. Of course as an expert they had a Guardian journo on the show.

    The USA has more than enough home-grown lawyers already. I’m sure many Americans would be happy to see the departure of a few thousand, their mischief is legendary.

    Hmm big news, I wonder why he is relocating? Better life? Maybe he just wants away from all the press this case is getting, either way good luck to him.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
