Solicitors brace for landmark judgments

first_imgThe Supreme Court today begins a two-day hearing in Haven v Gavin Edmondson Solicitors Limited which could go a long way to ending the debate over insurers who contact injured parties directly after solicitors have notified them of a claim.In the Court of Appeal, meanwhile, City firm Mishcon de Reya is preparing to challenge a ruling which left it liable for £1m losses suffered by a conveyancing client who bought a property from a fraudster posing as the owner.The Law Society will intervene in the Haven case and has sought permission to intervene in the Mishcons case. Both are set to have major costs and indemnity insurance implications for other firms working in both sectors.In Haven, solicitors who were successful in the Court of Appeal will urge judges to stop insurers settling claims directly with claimants on terms that do not provide for their representatives to be paid under the portal scheme.The Law Society said: ‘We are asking the Supreme Court to confirm that the equitable lien can be applied to protect solicitors’ rights to their costs in modern litigation; particularly in fixed-costs regimes where the indemnity principle does not apply.’The Dreamvar v Mishcon de Reya judgment last year set off alarm bells across the legal profession, as the High Court effectively ruled that insured solicitors were best placed to carry the financial burden of fraud, even where they had been neither negligent nor dishonest.Joe Egan, Law Society president, said: ‘Where a solicitor has carried out his or her duties in full compliance with those requirements, we do not believe they should bear the loss on behalf of a defrauded purchaser.’ The case is set to be heard later this month.last_img read more

Utah Utes football notebook: Backup QB Wynn’s still a candidate to redshirt this year

first_img Related After naming Terrance Cain as the starting quarterback over freshman Jordan Wynn in August, both coach Kyle Whittingham and offensive coordinator Dave Schramm said Wynn would see action this year as Cain’s backup.However, after four games, Wynn has done nothing but hold a clipboard and help send in signals to Cain.On Monday, Whittingham said it’s a “possibility,” that Wynn could end up redshirting, which would save him a year of eligibility. But what happens if Cain goes down with an injury in one of the final games of the season?”I don’t want to speculate on speculation,” Whittingham said.Ideally, the Utes would like to save a year for Wynn, but with no other backup quarterbacks, the Utes may try to get Wynn some snaps during the next month and give him some experience in case something happened to Cain.WHERE’S DEVONTE?: At the conclusion of fall practice, Whittingham praised DeVonte Christopher, the quarterback-turned-receiver as the most improved player on the team.So where has Christopher been all year? Although he has played, he has yet to catch a pass or run the ball in any of Utah’s four games.”We’ve got a lot of good receivers,” Whittingham said. “He’s behind some pretty good players.”Whittingham points out that Christopher is playing on a couple of the Utes’ special teams and is “contributing” to the team even if he isn’t catching a lot of passes. With receiver Shaky Smithson getting reps as a running back, Christopher may get more chances to catch passes, Whittingham said.NO POWS FOR UTES: Last year, Utah dominated the MWC Player of the Week awards with 12 honors, four more than TCU and BYU.This year, the Utes aren’t faring so well. After five weeks, the Utes have yet to pick up a MWC POW honor. The only other team that hasn’t picked up a MWC weekly award is 0-5 New Mexico.A year ago, kicker Louie Sakoda led the league with five POW honors, while quarterback Brian Johnson had three.EXTRA POINTS: The Utes rank first in the MWC in total offense with 423.8 yards per game and 23rd in the country. Utah is also 23rd in rushing offense and third in the MWC . . . Among individuals, safety Robert Johnson is tied for seventh in the country in fumble recoveries and placekicker Joe Phillips is 21st with 1.67 field goals per game . . . With Walter Watts questionable for this week, freshman Tevita Stevens will likely get most of the reps at right guard against Colorado State.e-mail: [email protected] Ute defenders want tackleslast_img read more

Green wins gold on Anzac Day

first_imgAnother hot, humid day may be the reason that the scores were not good today as indicated by the score of 34 points which gave Craig Green the gold medal, just relegating Peter Bird to second place on count back.  A surprised Alan Bartlett rang the bell back at the Billabong after coming in third with 33 points, edging Gentry Harrington on count back.Birdie ‘2’s are hard to come by at Phoenix and this week was no exception, with Thiery Petrement scooping the pool with the only one of the day.Wednesday, April 27, Green Valley – Monthly MedalIt is difficult imagine a golf course in Thailand that is not suffering from the recent high temperatures and absence of rain.  Regardless of how much water comes through the sprinkler system when it is working correctly (which many sprinkler heads at Green Valley are not), this does not compensate for some good, steady rain.  Green Valley is no different from any other course and there is evidence everywhere that the greens staff are having a hard time maintaining their usual high standards, with various shades of brown covering the entire course.The Courtyard team of Helmut, Dave, Jeff and Chris.Brian Chapman, who started his own financial consultancy business recently, Haven Consultants based in Nern Plubwan, is a long term supporter of the Billabong year-long competition, for the trophies are sponsored by his company.The monthly medal is something you either look forward to or approach with some trepidation.  Auk Engelkes came into the latter category today, trying to remain incognito by wearing a very peculiar  hat, his reasoning being that Superman can get away with wearing glasses so why not.  It did not work or help his golf.  Thankfully, it (the hat) is only exposed to the light of day on the King of Nederland’s birthday.A cooling breeze had the effect of reducing the temperature, well, from 40 degrees plus to 37 degrees but the unrelenting heat did not stop Miss Da from winning consecutive competitions with a fine net 65, winning by a fair margin from Miss Nu with a net 69 and Miss Karn in third with a net 70.Da, Nu and Karn with Brian Chapman.Many scores from the male contingent were the sort of performances that make you want to go to a small room and consider whether you have an aptitude for golf, but four were happy with their day’s tally.  Jack Piercefield occupied fourth place with a net 70, losing to Freddy Starbeck on the same score.  Lloyd Shuttleworth, in a hurry to catch a flight to Iraq, came in second with net 68 but John Deardon will play in the final next March after posting a fine net 67.The greens had recovered from the top dressing and there were three 2s, coming from Miss Saipin, Miss Yui and Barry Copestake.Friday, April 29, Plutaluang – ScramblePlaying our monthly scramble at the Plutaluang golf course and apart from a lot of us missing the turn under the railway bridge everything went smoothly.  We were off to an early start and with 14 groups it was an absolute doddle for all to get out on the course.The golf course was in fantastic condition and very green with no areas of brown patches anywhere.  Playing North and West loops we got a little respite from the oppressive heat from the last few weeks and with a gentle breeze blowing it made for a good day out.The scores were all in the low net 60s, with Ed Horrock, Don Hachey, Rick Hiatt and Ted Gardiner taking the third place with net 61.  Next came Team Billabong consisting of the colourful Greg Ritchie, Bill Marsden, Paul Greenaway and Bob Philp taking second with net 60.6, but everyone was outscored by the team from the Courtyard of Helmut Hebstreit, Dave Done, Jeff North and Chris, with a fantastic 57.8.  That’s a great round of golf guys! PSC Golf from The Billabong Golf BarMonday, April 25, Phoenix – StablefordApril 25 is a memorable day for Australians and New Zealanders for this is commemorated as ANZAC day.  This date in 1915 marks the occasion when soldiers from both countries, joined others from the commonwealth, to invade Gallipoli and lost more than 8,000 men.  ANZAC day has, over the years, been extended to embrace all those Australians and New Zealanders that have given their lives in various conflicts and wars throughout the world.Anyone passing the Billabong Bar at 6 a.m. this morning would have seen 25 men standing with their heads bowed for the traditional dawn service – the landing at Gallipoli started at dawn – to have a simple service of remembrance.  The Colonel – Bob Pearce – recited the ‘Ode of Remembrance’, the flag was lowered by Lloyd Shuttleworth to the sounds of the ‘Last Post’ and raised again to ‘Reveille’ and the solemnity of the occasion touched everyone present.  A cup of coffee and a bacon sandwich followed before leaving for Phoenix.The Australian flag flies proudly over the Billabong Bar on ANZAC Day.last_img read more

Players to watch in Group E

first_img0Shares0000RIO DE JANEIRO, June 10, 2014 (AFP) – Five key players in World Cup Group E:Karim Benzema – France Born: 19/12/1987, Caps 63The back injury to his close friend Franck Ribery places even more pressure on Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema, the only other player with real international cachet, to lead the team both up front and by example.A return of 19 goals in 63 appearances is poor by top international strikers standards.He failed to shine at his last major championships, Euro 2012, but a productive season with Real, where he found Carlo Ancelotti’s less abrasive style of coaching more to his taste than predecessor Jose Mourinho’s, gives Didier Deschamps reason to believe he will shine in Brazil.Blaise Matuidi – FranceBorn: 9/4/1987, Caps 22Even though Paris Saint Germain’s former owners were reluctant to buy him according to former coach Antoine Kombouare, Blaise Matuidi has shown the 10 million euros they paid St Etienne in July 2011 has been a wise investment.He is another who flourished under Ancelotti’s coaching when the Italian replaced Kombouare in January 2012.The son of Angolan immigrants, who fled a civil war and came to France via the Democratic Republic of Congo, his dynamic performances from midfield have been instrumental in PSG’s two league titles in two seasons and Deschamps will be looking to him to break up the fluidity of their opponents’ attacks.Antonio Valencia – EcuadorBorn: 04/08/1985, Caps 60A lot of pressure has been heaped on winger Antonio Valencia’s shoulders going into the finals.Coach Reinaldo Rueda appointed him captain in the wake of his best friend Christian Benitez’s sudden death last year and if his under par performances for Manchester United last season was a reaction to the tragedy then his country will expect him to react more positively when he dons the national shirt.One of the sole remaining players from the 2006 squad that reached the last 16, he showed he is on edge by reacting badly to Raheem Sterling’s clumsy tackle in the 2-2 friendly draw with England last week and got sent off.Wilson Palacios – HondurasBorn: 29/07/1984, Caps 94A close friend of Valencia’s from their days at Wigan Athletic together but unlike the winger Wilson Palacios’s big money move, to Tottenham Hotspur, for £12 million failed to really work out.A solid unspectacular midfield enforcer, who presently plies his trade with Stoke City, he has nevertheless been instrumental in the impoverished country reaching two successive World Cup finals.Made World Cup finals history in 2010 when he and brothers Jerry and Johnny became the first sibling trio to be selected in a squad.Jerry, a striker, has made it into the squad this time too and if there is one thing Wilson wishes to achieve it is that either him or his sibling score a goal as a tribute to another brother, Edwin, murdered in 2009.“Everything we do is for our little brother in heaven,” he said.Valon Behrami – SwitzerlandBorn: 19/04/1985, Caps 48While there is a lot of burgeoning young talent in the Swiss side, Valon Behrami provides a steady presence and his ball winning skills are priceless, although don’t expect too many goals from him as he has just two for his adopted country.Kosovo-born he was more interested in athletics as a youngster but switching sports proved a blessing and he’s flourished since returning to play in Italy in 2011, first with Fiorentina and then with Napoli.This is his third World Cup finals, though he will hope for a happier experience than the one in 2010 where he was sent off early in the group game with Chile.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
