HC Deb 12 November 1928 vol 222 cc519-20W

asked the Attorney-General whether he has received a communication from Mr. S. Rosenberg, of No. 3, Denning Road, Hampstead, relative to the conduct of litigation in which he has been involved in the Law Courts; and, in view of the fact that there is no Government Department which has powers to investigate such charges, whether he will take any action in the matter?


I have received no such communication, but in February and March, 1927, communications were addressed to my predecessor by a person writing under the name S. Rosen. He was the plaintiff in an action tried on 16th February, 1927, in which he claimed damages for breach of contract and negligence against a firm of estate agents. He was represented by well-known counsel. The jury returned a verdict for the defendant with costs at the end of the plaintiff's case. During the course of the trial the plaintiff made allegations against his own counsel which the learned Judge described as entirely unfounded, and since the trial he has made allegations of negligence against his solicitors. The latter complaint has been considered by the Law Society, who replied that the matter was not one with regard to which the Society has jurisdiction to intervene. I cannot take any action in the matter.
