You may have noticed an item on the news on Friday (including a cameo from me) relating to the successful court case bought against Mr Djurberg by people who were sold houseboats under the assumption that they had legal residential mooring rights.

The judge found wholly in favour of the buyers and now Mr Djurberg must pay back the money in full along with other costs incurred by the buyers.

I've been fortunate enough to be given sight of the full adjudication and I have to say it makes for absolutely shocking reading.  Of course the fact that Mr Djurberg has been obliged to settle the matter financially doesn't, I'm afraid, automatically guarantee that the buyers will see any of the money they paid him.

And we still await the findings of the second public inquiry which was held earlier in the summer.

Regarding the judge himself, he has a nice turn of phrase and literary allusion 'Regarding Mr Djurberg, as Montaigne put it so elegantly, "no one characteristic clasps us purely and universally in its embrace"'

Thanks Gareth - Do you know if/where the judgment is available? It's not on the judiciary website (as yet).

I had a copy shared by one of the parties to the case

No worries. It may yet get published on Bailii or elsewhere so I'll keep an eye out.

Good work Gareth I thought I spotted you on the BBC news. Myck Djurberg seems a bit of a shady character - he was in in court last year over an allegation of sexual assault...
