Accountancy Age and Deloitte in High Court

Accountancy's watchdog, the JDS, and Accountancy Age fight to lift a Deloitte injuntion in the High Court.

Accountancy Age and the accountant’s Joint Disciplinary Scheme is in the High Court today (Monday) fighting to lift an interim injunction granted to Deloitte that prevents both from publishing information on an investigation into the Big Four firm.

The investigation covers Deloitte’s audit of casino group Capital Corporation in the mid-nineties, and respected barrister, Michael Beloff, has been instructed by the JDS.

Deloitte said it had obtained the injunction to uphold its rights under the JDS rules.

Accountancy Age editor, Damian Wild, said: ‘We are taking this action because we believe there are important issues at stake.’

The JDS declined to comment.
