Stop Press news just in: Could this be the same Jim McGinley?

If what I’m  about to show is the same James Joseph McGinley born in 1961 as the one in the previous Blog aka the Rangers Tax Case obsessive @broganrogantrev ?

Then smack my bum and shout pot kettle black.

If it is then it reeks of hypocrisy as it appears that he has pulled the old Craig Whyte trick of changing birth-date.

It appears he has been at the helm of numerous failed businesses.

Also we could have another ex Solicitor with a dubious legal history on our Rangers Tax Case List.

If it is one and the same person he appears to be married to Sharon McCrudden a procurator fiscal, hmmmmm murkier and murkier

Lawyers bid to save pub firm

Sunday Mail 2003

Byline: NORMAN SILVESTER

A LEADING lawyer has until tomorrow to save his pub company.

The Dunmore Pub Company, owned by solicitor James McGinley, faced the chop on Friday over an unpaid VAT bill.

But as the firm was about to fold Customs and Excise offcials agreed to an 11th-hour reprieve.

McGinley, 42, whose wife Sharon is a procurator fiscal, has faced a dozen court actions since 1997 over unpaid debts accrued by him and his various companies.

McGinley, an expert in licensing law, is an office bearer of 15 firms and his partners include Glasgow night club boss James Mortimer.

When contacted by the Sunday Mail on Friday, McGinley said he would be clearing the debt of Pounds 1613.

A Customs spokesman told us: “The deadline for payment was Friday but we have now allowed Mr McGinley until Monday to pay the outstanding amount.”

Dunmore own two pubs in Glasgow, the Auld Hoose in Baillieston and the Wharf in Yoker.

His law firm, Reilly McGinley, is based in the city. His sister Anne Marie, 36, is also a partner.

Scottish Solicitors’ Discipline Tribunal

20 June 05

JAMES JOSEPH McGINLEY

A complaint was made by the Council of the Law Society of Scotland against James Joseph McGinley, Solicitor, Reilly McGinley, 57 Ruthven Lane, Glasgow (“the respondent”). The Tribunal found the respondent guilty of professional misconduct in respect of his unconscionable delay and at times failure to reply to letters from another firm of solicitors and correspondence from the Law Society of Scotland, and his unconscionable delay in implementing a mandate. The Tribunal censured the respondent and fined him in the sum of £1,000.

The Tribunal has made it clear on numerous occasions that solicitors have a duty to co-operate with the Society and to provide, as soon as practicable, a full and accurate explanation in respect of any matter which is the subject of a complaint. It is also imperative for solicitors to act with fellow solicitors in a manner consistent to persons having mutual trust and confidence in each other. The Tribunal however took account of the difficulties experienced by the respondent in connection with water damage to his offices and also noted that the respondent had co-operated with the Society and entered into a joint minute in respect of the complaint. The respondent had also taken steps to improve the situation by reducing his workload and closing branch offices. The respondent seemed genuinely contrite with regard to his failures. The Tribunal was accordingly satisfied that it was not likely that the respondent’s actions would be a continuing course of conduct and the Tribunal considered that a censure and a fine of £1,000 would be sufficient penalty.

    I take it you are just jealous of his intelligence and command of the English language. His latest blog was very insightful, fair and a pleasure to read.
    Had any luck finding Mr Rangers Tax Case yet?
    Made any apologies to those you wrongly accused?
    Found out who actually owns your new football club yet?
    Worked out why Mr Murray was “duped” into selling your old club for £1 to a shyster whom he knew from his days as a Plant Hire firm operator in Lanarkshire and son-in-law of a steel mill owner?
    Wish your new team was playing in the Champions League rather than struggling against pub teams whose owners can’t even count up to 4,000?
    Dominus Vobiscum.

  3. I have never said that Brogan Rogan Trevino and Hogan intelligence and command of the English language was in doubt when hes obsessing about Rangers Tax Case.

    I certainly wouldnt compare my Tabloid hacking style as effective and to the point as it is to his.

    I was more of a Art, history craft & design and Physics man at school.

    I just Brogan Rogan Trevino and Hogan would inform the reader about his dubious history as a solicitor his list of failed companies and unpaid debts.

    When he is moralising on others.

    oh and P.S May your man made Lord be with you too!
