There are some bits of news which bring a smile to the face:
The Solicitors Regulation Authority closed Dean and Dean after suspending founder and leading lawyer Shahrokh Mireskandari over claims he mishandled clients’ money and breached official rules governing legal conduct.
The Iranian-born solicitor - who represented former Met Assistant Commissioner Tarique Ghaffur, Met Commander Ali Dizaei and the National Black Police Association in race cases brought against the Met - could be struck off if the professional misconduct allegations are proved at a hearing due later this year.
It has already been revealed that Mr Mireskandari is a convicted conman, who was given three years probation by a US court over a telemarketing scam, and that his law degree was gained from a “mail drop” university.
The superb Harry's Place site, which is essential to anyone wanting to keep track of the Islamist threat, was sued via Dean and Dean. Good to see the firm getting its just reward.
