General: Man takes on SCA over failed R60m damages claim
The SCA is being taken to task by a man whose R60m damages claim against the SA Post Office was dismissed on appeal, says a report in Business Report. Brian de Lacy said that he had submitted a document to the JSC detailing 114 allegations against the judgment made in May by Judge Robert Nugent. De Lacy and Barry Beadon were members of Cornastone e-Commerce Services, which failed to win a tender for a pension payout system, and were ceded the claim against the Post Office by the High Court. The complaint alleges, among other things, that the Appeal Court judgment was grossly incompetent and made an incorrect finding. It said the judgment repeatedly did not consider all the evidence contained in the High Court record and in certain instances there was no evidence in the record to support the findings. According to the report, De Lacy said the JSC was considering the complaint.
