There must be some kind of way out of here…

Or a Naughty Step special edition.

Another Naughty Step post? So soon? Well, yes. I have no control over how these things crop up and not only does this case feature some jaw droppingly bad behaviour, the demise of a whole business legal model and some innovative law, it features Nearly Legal’s own Francis Davey in a starring role (and one that is entirely angelic, I hasten to add, as if it could be possibly be otherwise). Granted there is the drawback that the case has nothing to do with  housing law, but that minor hitch aside, how could I possibly resist? So, I wrote a post about the götterdämmerung of ACS:Law, Andrew Crossley and Media CAT. in Media CAT Ltd v Adams & Ors [2011] EWPCC 6.

The only trouble is that I got so interested, and the story so complex, that the post became an epic. As it has nothing whatsoever to do with housing law and may thus quite possibly be of limited interest, I decided not to put it on the front page. Instead it has a page of its own. For anyone who may be interested in the convoluted tale of hubris, strange contractual provisions and copyright law that unravelled at the recent hearings in this case, the post can be found here. For everyone else – we’ll have some more housing law along in a little while, promise.
