We’ve been following the troubles of British legal firm ACS:Law since last year, when the wheels came off its business sending settlement demands to alleged filesharers. Now the company’s boss Andrew Crossley has been told he’ll face an application to pay wasted costs in 27 cases that were recently thrown out. Judge Birss QC didn’t mince any words when making the ruling yesterday, either, criticising ACS:Law’s conduct as “amateurish and slipshod”, not to mention “chaotic and lamentable”. And there’s more: “In my judgment the combination of Mr Crossley’s revenue sharing arrangements and his service of the Notices of Discontinuance serves to illustrate the dangers of such a revenue sharing arrangement and has, prima facie, brought the legal profession into disrepute.” Source: ISP Review
