A brief update on the hearing held on Monday this week in which Jacqui Thompson sought to extend the scope of her appeal against the judgment handed down against her earlier this year.
Barnet blogger Mrs Angry attended the hearing, and you can read her report here.
The only thing to add was that Mr James's legal team turned out in force, with his barrister being accompanied by three others. It is apparently very unusual for the other side to turn up to a hearing of this kind, and it is further proof if proof were needed that whatever other cutbacks the council is making, no expense is being spared when it comes to legal representation for the chief executive.
To the person who wrote a vicious comment rejoicing in Mrs Thompson's plight and expressing thanks that Jacqui and her family face losing their home rather than Mr James, you have obviously not understood the fundamentals of the case. Mr James's home was never at risk for the simple reason that the taxpayer is funding his case. Your comment will not be published.
