A source close to John Galliano told British Vogue that the designer is focusing on his recovery and trying not to dwell on the latest crop of lawsuits involving his former lawyer, Stephane Zerbib: "Sadly we are part of a litigious society ... These latest developments are all a huge blow to Mr. Galliano; to discover a trusted 'friend' has been abusing his position over a number of years is such a disappointment — but Mr Galliano needs to continue to focus on his rehab and recovery and his team cannot be distracted by Mr. Zerbib's noise when there is legal defense to prepare. Officially there is 'no comment' as this is now in the hands of Mr Galliano's new criminal lawyer Aurélien Hamelle at Metzner associates in Paris." [Vogue UK]
