Dressing-down for legal eagles
IT WAS an uncomfortable situation for several legal eagles who were left squirming in their seats after an elder gave them a good dressing-down.
In his trademark slow drawl he reprimanded his younger colleagues, telling them, among other things, that they were taking unnecessarily long to deliver judgments.
Many were visibly upset and even a little embarrassed about the public condemnation and that it had taken place at a sombre gathering.
But everyone knows that this elder scholar is never asleep, especially when it comes to the profession which he holds so dear.
Two digging in
CALL IT the battle of the concrete millionaires.
Two construction moguls are at it again in a bid to control the industry.
Pudding & Souse was reliably informed that one of them is seeking to acquire a certain construction firm which would certainly make him king of the concrete jungle.
He was overheard telling the other mogul during a public confrontation that he would make sure he shuts his rival down once and for all.
THERE WAS no kidding around by a certain man when he evicted the son of one of his wealthy friends from a major high-flying event.
It appears that the son, who is trying to perfect his swing on the greens, was somewhat disrespectful to the man’s wife.
He should have known that he could not speak to a lady who has a title before her name in such a condescending tone, especially at her own event.
Rolling in dough
A FAMILY with political connections is hopping mad after a court ruled that daddy’s outside child was legally a member of the group.
It appears that after his father passed away the man went to court to gain recognition as his son.
Apparently, his father took him around when he was a teenager and told friends this was his offspring. He even allowed the son to work in his business.
But after the old man passed away the family said they knew nothing about this younger man.
The court obviously held a different view. Its ruling means that he can now stake a claim to part of the estate.
