Quigal Announces Winner of its Amazon Kindle Sweepstakes

Quigal.com — an online lawyer search service, which only accepts listings from attorneys with exceptional credentials — has chosen the winner of its “Win a Kindle Sweepstakes,” a free contest that gave Quigal’s users an opportunity to provide constructive feedback on the site.

To enter the contest, users were asked to provide feedback on Quigal.com’s website, to join Quigal.com’s Facebook page, or to follow Quigal.com on Twitter. One entrant was randomly chosen to win an Amazon Kindle.

The feedback Quigal.com received in response to the sweepstakes was overwhelmingly positive. Here is a sample:

•  “I think Quigal is very easy to use. I hope it becomes more popular. These sites are sometimes very confusing.”
•  “What a great concept for a website! Looking in the phone book for a lawyer is very daunting; there are so many of them and it’s hard to navigate.”
•  “I’m happy to see that there are so many attorneys listed in my area! I’m glad to know about this great resource.”
•  “I think this is a wonderful website that is very useful. I’ve shared the website with my family and friends.”
•  “Very interesting. Would definitely use this search if I ever need legal counsel. Otherwise, I wouldn’t even know where to start!”
•  “A great way to find an attorney; the majority of people may not have personal references to so many types!”

“We are excited about the positive response to our solicitation for feedback,” noted Renate Harrison, founder and CEO. “We can now confidently expand and improve our service with the knowledge that it is meeting a need.”

Schillings Announces Stelios Win In Ryanair Libel Battle

Schillings law firm has announced that Sir Stelios Haji-loannou has won his libel battle against Michael O’Leary and Ryanair.

Sir Stelios, the founder of easyJet and the easyGroup business empire, accepted a complete apology and retraction from O’Leary and Ryanair over a series of libelous adverts in January and February this year which portrayed Sir Stelios as a “Pinocchio” character and alleged he had “hidden the truth” about easyJet’s on-time statistics. By doing so, they alleged he had lied when he had not.

In settlement of the claim, O’Leary and Ryanair have taken out advertisements in The Guardian and The Daily Telegraph apologising to Sir Stelios for including him in the original advertisements.

In an agreed statement read in the High Court this morning, Sir Stelios’ lawyers Schillings said: “Mr. O’Leary and Ryanair accept that the advertisements should not have been published referring to Sir Stelios and have made a complete offer to settle his claim. In doing so they fully accept that Sir Stelios did not lie about the matter.”

The Claim was issued after Sir Stelios’ complaint about the original adverts was met with a robust and public response from O’Leary and Ryanair. After challenging Sir Stelios to a race around Trafalgar Square or a Sumo Wrestling Competition to resolve the dispute, O’Leary and Ryanair have now agreed to pay damages, legal costs and undertake not to repeat the claim in addition to the public apologies.
