In a celebrity attempt to turn reality into a News of the World story, there are reports that Katie Price is hiring Mr Loophole (TM) to defend her against charges of using a mobile phone while driving. That’s not us being sarcastic by the way – lawyer Nick Freeman has legally trademarked the name “Mr Loophole”, forcing the same court system he professionally prevents from prosecuting people to advertise that he does so by crucifying the spirit of the law on its letter.
In the past he’s saved celebrity clients from speeding fines based on laws from a time before cars could go that fast, and had an entire case thrown out by making a show of someone winking. Miss Price has hired him to battle charges of speeding and using a mobile phone while driving. It remains to be seen if the phone will be embarrassed to be associated with them.
