Barrister Tony Morris QC who led the charge in the Levitt Robinson / Storm class action against the banks has been given his marching orders by Levitt Robinson. 

In shocking information provided by a credible inside source, The Plain Truth has learned that that the legal firm Levitt Robinson (Levitts) has suddenly sacked its gun barrister Tony Morris QC deflating the class action charge against the banks on behalf of Storm clients.

Whilst the news of the sacking is surprising, even more shocking is the reason given for the sudden axing at such a crucial point in the case before Justice Reeves in the Federal Court in Brisbane.

It is understood that the class action lawyers are burning through money at such a rapid rate that more funds are needed to keep the action alive.  To this end a number of roadshows were organised by Levitts, with the assistance of former Storm advisor Ron Jelich, in order to drum up support and additional funds .  Naturally the cash strapped and exhausted Storm clients who are being asked to cough up the extra dollars, require reassurance that the prospects of winning the case are as good as has always been represented to them.

Mr Morris was asked by Levitts to endorse a level of success for winning the case far in excess of what he believed.  Accordingly his refusal to  comply' with this request, when he didn't believe it, and in conjunction with Mr Morris'  less than enthusiastic' response to endorse a potentially misleading level of prospect of success led to his immediate sacking.

Mr Levitt was contacted by us directly via email for a response and to date has remained silent.  Should Mr Levitt make a statement, The Plain Truth will give it a fair hearing and let its readers know.
