Andrew Crossley, the controversial solicitor who sent thousands of letters to alleged illegal file-sharers, has been suspended from the profession for two years.

At a disciplinary tribunal he was also ordered to pay costs of £76,326.55.

When a handful of cases came to court, the scheme came in for widespread derision, angering the presiding judge, Judge Birss, who turned the spotlight on Mr Crossley, accusing him of abusing the court process.

Nice article!  Thanks for sharing Glenn.  Some day I foresee a similar article being written about Getty and McCormack Law.
