The Lying Big V

As a lawyer, who in their right mind would tell the media that a statement of agreed facts they handed up to the Federal Court was just something they said so that the problem would go away?

Now, Steve Vizard is in the spotlight for a possible perjury prosecution. It is not like he said something in court before the police found a document on his hard drive which contradicted his evidence. He contradicted his own evidence in the Magistrates Court via a court document to be handed up in the Federal Court!

If I were his lawyer, I would be checking seek.com.au for a new job and my professional indemnity insurance. What a great response. ‘Oh, yeah, that…We were just blowing smoke up your arse there, Your Honour. We didn’t really expect you to take those as facts, more, just, um, well, goodbye.’ [door slamming…sound of lawyer running].

How pissed off would the judge be?

How easy is it to get a hold of a wrongful death lawyer in Edmonton? It seems like there aren't very many of them around.

I hope that my vancouver family law lawyer isn't that dumb! He actually seems very knowledgeable about all of that! Wish me luck!
