Famous cases of Sir Patrick Hastings , K.C.
Selected and presented at the microphone by EDGAR LUSTGARTEN
6: Laski v. The Newark Advertiser et at. 1945
During the General Election campaign of 1945 Professor Laski, the distinguished political theorist, was reported as saying that if reform by consent proved impossible then ' we shall have to use violence. even if it means revolution.' He sued the newspapers concerned for libel, and a much discussed cross-examination by Hastings was undoubtedly the strongest influence on the jury to find against the Professor.
