The debate about whether divorcing Spouses can steal documents from each other took another turn today in a new Court of Appeal decision reportedlysaying the Hildrebrand principles (effectively permitting the practice within limits) have no basis in law. See here. In this case one of the lawyers seeks to defend stealing and appears to say two wrongs do in fact make a right. Interesting! I have blogged previously on this here.
