Re: Black and white or various shades of grey?

Reading the Judge’s response, it would be difficult to prove the defendant accessed the records illegally, There appears to have been no guidance or policy on the records judges could access, and there were no access controls in place to prevent unauthorised access. A good lawyer, (and she should know a few) has clearly argued that case.

Not saying it’s right, just stating the facts, and as said in the article, the chances of a Jury convicting were practically zero.
