Congratulations Michelle England for being today's winner on Sydney Lawyers Asshole of the Day! You have been nominated several times for the award, and after a fantastic performance in the Supreme Court last week, you have won this amazing opportunity!
First of all, we would like to tell you a little bit about our contestant Michelle. She successfully argued her matter first in the Supreme Court in Sydney before Judge Balls as the Respondent. A fantastic win, and she almost won another case also in the Supreme Court that wasn't even being argued that day! Talk about saving the tax-payers money Michelle, what a fine legal example you are.
Then [she] successfully won a case against a grandmother fighting to have contact with her grandchild in the care of the "System", after being allowed to argue that the grandmother - who is also in a wheelchair - was not a suitable person to be having contact with her grandchild because she attended a protest. Great going Michelle, you're certainly setting the style for ethical legal arguments in the NSW Courts.
