Lynn Struck Off and Fined €2m

Here's another shocker. The High Court has struck off 'renegade' solicitor Michael Lynn and fined him €2m in absentia. A report in the Belfast Telegraph says: "The President, Mr Justice Richard Johnson, granted the application made by Shane Murphy for the Law Society on the back of recommendations by the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal last month."

It continues: "It is estimated that the Mayo native, whose whereabouts are unknown, owes a number of financial institutions more than €80m." Ouch.

I think this is what you officially term "closing the stable door when the horse has bolted." I'm sure Mr. Lynn is quaking in his boots over the most recent ruling on his case.

More likely he is laughing his backside off reading reports like this one on the internet. If you're reading this, hi Mick, how's it going?
