‘Farter-F*ck’: Carter-Ruck gains crude copycat website after IT firm fallout

Sites creators claim they were “wrongfully persecuted” by media law giant

An aggrieved IT firm has created a rather childish clone of Carter-Ruck’s website called ‘Farter-Fuck’.

According to the webpage, ‘Farter-fuck.co.uk’ is the brainchild of a company called ‘Hutton IT’, which claim it was “wrongfully persecuted” by the media firm’s lawyers.

Helpfully the site — which is still live — redirects presumably baffled Carter-Ruck clients to the firm’s genuine website after a few seconds.

First spotted by legal blog Roll on Friday, the site’s sweary URL appears to be based on a joke once made by current affairs magazine Private Eye.

Having apparently received a complaint from the London-based libel specialist, the publication — all too familiar with legal threats — cheekily responded, referring to the firm as “Farter-Fuck”.

Legal Cheek has contacted Farter-Fuck Carter-Ruck for comment.

Private Eye call them “Carter Fuck” regularly – which I think is much more to the point than Farter! Sounds better too…

I appreciate that you at least mention the story was first broke on RoF, that’s sensible of you.

Does anyone here work in libel law/defamation? If so, what’s it like? I’m doing my tc atm and have no experience in this area, but it sounds interesting.

Totally deserved. Farter F*cks are among the biggest c*ntsacks in the business. They’re infamous by being ridiculously obtuse in litigation proceedings, almost to the point that their opponents feel they must be taking the proverbial. Awful shop.

Rosling King LLP is even worse. By far the worst bunch of muppets in the City, pathetic litigators.

Anon of 1045. Dun do libel cases. Your client is as likely to sue you. Unless it’s a slam dunk , don’t touch it. When it is a slam dunk, one letter is enough.

LC. You won’t get any sponsorship or money, whilst you have Epsilon Minors posting on your site. Nor will you get anywhere by posting gratuitously gross invective.

Another RoF rewrite.

You have nothing to write about without me.

Prefer Private Eye’s nickname for them.

The Eye have relentlessly dissed them for years.

They should also redirect to IM and AnG whilst they’re at it.

Thumbs up IT people!
