#McCann V Bennett Case Likely To Be Adjourned

The hearing of McCann V Bennett of the 9th and 10th of May is likely to be adjourned.

During April, Tony became aware of guidance from the Minister for Justice to the Legal Services Commission about the need to grant legal aid to defendants faced with well funded libel claimants.

Tony was refused legal aid in December, but this decision appears to have been wrong. Tony has therefore re-applied, and asked Carter Ruck if they would agree to an adjournment.

Carter Ruck have notified Tony Today, May 3rd that they have agreed.

Mr. Justice Tugendhat is being invited to agree to the adjournment.

There will therefore probably be no hearing on 9th and 10th May.

I do know that people with legal knowledge have asked those on twitter  for Tony Bennett's e.mail , they are outraged by what is openly now called the McCann Scam.

Link to MMF sending all their good wishes and support to Mr.Bennett.
