Hong Kong High Court Finds Edward Lehman Innocent of Contempt of Court

An earlier contempt proceeding brought by Russell Brown against Mr. Lehman in HCMP2204/10 for breach of an injunction has been thrown into doubt by the Court of Appeal’s finding on Friday, March 22nd 2013. Mr. Lehman had been advised by his former lawyers to plead guilty and apologise to the Court for breaching the injunction. However, he had never been properly advised about the terms of that injunction.

Russell Brown’s side was ordered to pay to Mr. Lehman the costs incurred by him in bringing the appeal.
