R v C
Philip Goldberg praised by the Crown Court Judge in his successful appeal of a driving disqualification imposed by Bradford Magistrates Court putting “an end to his sleepless nights” as he can stop worrying about the future of his employees and his business.
Philip Goldberg was instructed to represent a client for an appeal against a driving disqualification imposed before the Magistrates Court. The driver had been travelling on a motorway at 93 mph but already had 9 points on his license. Despite advancing arguments at the initial court hearing he was disqualified from driving for 6 months.
Immediately we applied successfully pending appeal to suspend the disqualification. We then embarked on a detailed analysis of the issues and arguments before preparing a court bundle which exceeded 125 pages. In brief the argument was that the client was the Managing Director of a small family run business and he was responsible for just over 50% of the sales which meant he travelled over 27,000 miles per year. 10 other employees relied upon him for their employment and not only was there a risk to jobs but also the collapse of the company itself. The loss of the licence would have been devastating for him and those he employed.
