Civil Law Court Fines Lawyer Sims US$200

By Ballah M. Kollie 

MONROVIA, April 18 (LINA) – Civil Law Court Judge Yussuf D. Kaba has ordered Counselor Albert Sims to pay into government revenue US$200 within 72 hours or face further punishment.

Imposing the fine Tuesday, Judge Kaba disclosed that should Counselor Sims fail to pay the amount within the stated period, he could be detained in a common prison for over a month.

According to Judge Kaba the fine is a result of Cllr. Sims’ failure to honor the Notice of Assignment served him for a hearing on Tuesday, April 18, describing the action as contemptuous.

Cllr. Sims represents the legal interest of defendant John Flomo et all in the case Amadu M. Diallo verses John Flomo et all.

The judge recalled Cllr. Sims placing on court records a submission that calls for an investigative survey but wonders why he did not perfect the submission by coming to court.

The matter was ordered suspended due to the absence of Cllr. Sims.
