This article reports that Conservative Party's member of Parliament Howard Flight's legal team will decide whether to issue an injunction against Michael Howard or should he press on with moves to deselect the MP. Flight turned to Jones Day consultant and sole practitioner David Cooper for the matter. Cooper told that he was seeking a second opinion from someone else and expects it to confirm their original position. If Flight is deselected he has three options: accept the decision; stand as an independent conservative candidate; or issue an injunction.
