Convicted ex-lawyer Randell now turns to SCA

Discredited former attorney and education litigation warrior Mike Randell has resorted to the Supreme Court of Appeal to fight the high court’s refusal of leave to appeal his fraud and theft conviction.

Randell was celebrated for spearheading a class action against the education department in 2010, which culminated in an order that the department fill more than 6000 vacant teacher posts.

But Randell was himself the subject of a scandal in 2015, when he was struck from the roll of attorneys after being exposed for his part in defrauding a Port Elizabeth school, Greenwood Primary, of some R2.4-million.
