When does the harassment stop?


One day there was a blogger. This blogger had a habit of saying nasty things about people and had been taken to court several times already*.

One day, that blogger decided, “I know, I’ll taught my friend who recently decided to attempt suicide.” So she did, and was really quite nasty.

Well, that friend had a nice friend who was a lawyer. Let’s call her Madeleine. Madeleine also knew the blogger, because she was a blogger too.

So she went to the blogger, and said “look, this isn’t really very nice. Could you please stop being so mean?”

The blogger didn’t like that. So she started being mean to Madeleine too. She made up a nasty little lie and whispered in the ear of Madeleine’s boss.

Of course, this was a bit silly. Taunting lawyers is bound to get you into trouble, and sure enough, Madeleine decided that this behaviour had to stop. So she found a new lawyer to help her.

Soon the blogger was inundated with afidavits and court appointments. She knew she was in trouble, even if she was pretending to all her readers that she was a nice person.

So she filed complaints with the Law Society.

Meanwhile, the judge handed down his ruling. He didn’t give Madeleine what she wanted, but he did agree with one thing – the blogger had been very nasty, even as she tried to tell everyone she was being bullied.

[138] Subsequent posts of 10 May 2012 entitled “Lies No 1 and 2” carry the personal attack further accusing Ms Brown of being a liar and it continues in Lie No 3 posted on 10 May 2012 together with clippings from newspapers featuring Ms Brown. Lie No 4 was posted on 10 May 2012 all of which seems to point to an obsession that Ms Sperling has with Ms Brown rather than Ms Brown having an obsession with Ms Sperling as she stated in the comment “please leave me alone”. In fact it is Ms Brown who appears to have been the subject of continued attention from Ms Sperling.

But even after the courts declared that the blogger was a nasty person, she still kept being mean, looking for new ways to taunt and persecute people who  dared to cross her path…

I have received confirmation of my complaint from the Law Society regarding Simon Buckingham. I am considering making another complaint regarding his conduct in relation to threats that he made to me the evening prior to this case being heard regarding having the judge deem my behaviour to be a criminal matter.

Re my complaint regarding Madeleine – i have not yet heard back from the Law Society other than confirmation that they had received it – regarding that complaint. I am also considering making another complaint in relation to her conduct since the last one i submitted to them.

If i am allowed to – i will advise how they went when i hear – however it is my understanding that the Law Society also publishes that information on their own website.

I hope by now that you’ve worked out why I’ve told this tale like it was a fairy story – it’s well into la-la land.

  1. She has attacked one person.
  2. That person hired a lawyer, who she attacked even more viciously.
  3. That person hired a lawyer, who she also attacked
  4. Now the courts have declared that she is not the victim, but rather the perpetrator, the harrasser not the harrassee, and she is in response considering laying even more complaints.

This is insane. How long does she hope to carry this on? Will she lay formal complaints about her victim’s, lawyer, lawyer’s, lawyer? What about that lawyer’s accountant? How about the guy who sells the accountant his coffee?

That coffee guy might have a cat, and the cat has a vet…

* Perhaps a future post.


This post is about Jacqueline (Jackie) Sperling, and is part of an ongoing series discussing her ongoing campaign of harassment and lies against lawyer Madeleine Flannagan and Ms Brown, and The Narrative – the alternate reality she presents on her blog in which she pretends to be the victim of her targets. You can read a court decision that outlines her campaign and the court’s assessment of The Narrative here.

Please do not place abusive comments on her blog, phone her, or approach her or her family as she will blame this on her victims.
