The lawyer that represented himself and sued ACS for the confiscation of the iPhone 7 is Andrew Hanam. It was his son that was caught playing with the phone. Any self-respecting father would make his son own up to the mistake.
Mr Hanam is “well-known” lawyer. In 2007, Chief Justice asked the Law Society to see if Mr Hanam had breached his professional duties. He had billed a client $80,000 for work done for an accident case that escalated to the High Court. In fact, he didn’t even turned up in court when he was supposed to.

Then in 2013, he filed a case because he wanted to enter his neighbour’s house. He suspected the water leaks in 3 storey Thomson Green house was from his neighbour. Mr Hanam was told by the High Court that there was no valid easement – or legal right of way – in which he could enter businessman Lam Vui’s property without his consent. Justice Belinda Ang, in judgment grounds released on Thursday, said Mr Hanam’s application was “patently misconceived”.

So does Mr Hanam have a habit of filing lousy cases? Or is he just a very intelligent lawyer trying to find loopholes?
In any case, I think he did not bring any glory to the ACS family.
