What a difference a "U" makes

James Saunders, managing director of Saunders Law Ltd, the solicitor who represents the Hillsborough Family Support Group, said: "After truth there must be justice, and the High Court's order for fresh inquests on the 96 who died opens the path to justice for the Hillsborough families."

Independent newspaper, 19 December, 2012.

In reponse to the above posting we heard from the Colonel who wrote:

Dear Sir

We wish to correct a possible misunderstanding. The firm Squire Sanders has had no involvement in any aspect of the Hillsborough tribunal or any other related investigation. I believe the firm of Hammonds was involved. The latter no longer exists. If you persist with this line of coverage we will be obliged to take action to defend our reputation.


The Colonel.

I find it curious that the Colonel chose to threaten CBD in the manner outlined in his final sentence, when the potential linkage (ignoring the letter u) was to a firm who had represented the interests of the innocent and wronged party in the investigation under discussion.  It would be horrible to imagine the response if the linkage was to a firm who had represented the West Midlands Police.
