Russia and Its Influence over UK Courts and Banks

I first read about this particular happening in 'Putin's People' the exposé of the Russian war monger ..
This case before Mrs Justice Gloster involves a dispute between two Russian oligarchs, one a Putin Person, the other, certainly not, The extract is taken from Wiki .. 

QUOTE .. Gloster heard a case in 2012 involving two Russian oligarchs in which Boris Berezovsky claimed Roman Abramovich had intimidated him into selling shares in Russian oil giant Sibneft. and was claiming £3bn in damages. She found Berezovsky to be "an inherently unreliable witness" and found in favour of Abramovich. An editorial in The Times agreed with the judge's conclusion.[8] At the start of the trial she had disclosed in court that her stepson had represented Abramovich as a barrister at an early stage of the case. Berezovsky's lawyers said their client had no objection to her continuing to hear the case. They later claimed that the barrister's involvement for which he had been paid £469,000 in fees had been understated but did not appeal against the judgment.[9] Asked outside the court if he felt Russia's President Vladimir Putin would be happy with the ruling, Berezovsky replied: "Sometimes I have the impression that Putin himself wrote this judgment."[10] A Statement from the Judicial Office which represents judges said Dame Elizabeth's stepson had not appeared at any hearings where she had been present. The statement said: "Where a judge has disclosed a family relationship to the parties, it is a judicial decision whether a judge believes he or she should recuse him or herself. The way to challenge a decision not to recuse would be by appealing through the courts."[11]

On 9 April 2013, Dame Elizabeth was appointed a Lady Justice of Appeal[12] and consequently appointed to the Privy Council.

She became Vice-President of the Civil Division of the Court of Appeal on 7 December 2016, on the retirement of Lord Justice Moore-Bick.[13] She retired from the Court of Appeal on 1 June 2018.[7] UNQUOTE
