Paul Mitchell QC obtains justice for Private Eye’s Lowick One after 20 year campaign using tort not successfully sued upon since 1861

Paul Mitchell QC, instructed by Laytons, has completed another successful claim for a client seeking damages after being the victim of abusively pursued legal proceedings.  Dr Geoff Monks – whom readers of Private Eye will recognise as “The Lowick One” – has recovered by way of negotiation substantial damages from the successor council to East Northamptonshire Council.  This is the first time that the tort of abuse has been successfully used to recover damages since 1861.  Read Paul’s case note here.
