London - The solicitor who outed JK Rowling as the author of a crime novel written under a pen name has been fined £1 000 (R174 354.00).
Chris Gossage, a partner at London firm Russells, was also rebuked by the Solicitors Regulation Authority for breaking confidentiality rules.
In July, Miss Rowling brought a court case against Gossage and his friend Judith Callegari, who revealed on Twitter that Miss Rowling had written The Cuckoo’s Calling as Robert Galbraith. Russells made a payment to charity after the court heard Rowling had been ‘dismayed and distressed’ by the ‘betrayal of trust’.
