As we start to close the “door” on 2014 what were the legal highlights this year and what’s on the “horizon” for 2015.
For me what had my attention was the Oscar Pistorius trial and how that all unfolded. Fortunately for the former athlete he avoided the worst case scenario even though he was found culpable and now has jail time. No comfort to the family of the victim I’m sure. A 1 person judge and jury and the ability for the media to report freely was in stark contrast to the way a trial would have been run in this country. You can argue it both ways whether its a preferable system. A “made for TV” trial if ever there was one
2015? As a golf fan I’m going to be keeping a close eye on Rory McIlroy and his defence of the Horizon claims against him. In early contact argument, allegations and counter allegations have already begun to fly. Was data destroyed deliberately – we shall see whether his legal team can steer that one out of trouble. As a contract lawyer I’m intrigued that the whole issue of “unfair prejudice” looks like its going to be scrutinised very closely. Just how free was RM to enter in to what looks now potentially like a contract with penal rates of revenues.
Based on 2014 results it seems like the more trouble Rory is in off the course the less trouble he is on it. I wish that were true for all of us.
Wishing you Xmas and seasons greetings and good fortune for 2015.
