Andrew Crossley, The London-based lawyer at the centre of a long-running row over internet piracy has been suspended for two years and ordered to pay £76,000 in costs. Andrew Crossley, the sole solicitor behind now-defunct law firm ACS:Law, admitted six charges against him at a Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal hearing. David Potts, a lawyer who represented some of those accused by Crossley of copyright infringement, said the ruling would be welcomed by innocent recipients of ACS:Law letters that demanded a £500 ‘settlement’ payment for illegally downloading music and adult material
