The Lord Chancellor's department has shut down a Web site for being critical of judges. The site, run by James Hulbert, was openly critical of five judges who have presided over cases he was involved in. Speaking to The Register, a department representative said Hulbert had already lost two court hearings when he began to draw attention to his Web site which contained 'libellous and inaccurate information'. Rather than direct legal action, the Lord Chancellor's department contacted Hulbert's service provider, which duly removed the site claiming a breach of terms and conditions. Hulbert has since found a different service provider to host his site, which the department is also likely to contact, said the representative. The department was "not able to predict" how long this cat-and-mouse game would continue before direct legal action was taken. Hulbert claims his evidence is such that those involved would not dare take him to court. Hulbert was acquitted in 1991 of deception and assaulting a police officer. He sued the police for false imprisonment and settled out of court, but continued campaigning for the courts to recognise that evidence in his trial had been fabricated. The Web site details his progress with the case. ®
