The Smithy Code – UK Justice Grabs a Piece of the Holy Grail – UK Lawyer and his Law Firm Break the Code

The Smithy Code – UK Justice Grabs a Piece of the Holy Grail

Gee, we posted about the DVC before over at our Literary Pundit some time ago. DVC is sort of a JK Rowling for grownups – dictional fiction as factional transaction – pandoric pablum for plebeians.

Not to be outdone by the adversaries in the copyright infringement case brought by HBHG against DVC, the judge in the case, UK High Court (Chancery Division) Mr Justice Peter Smith embedded his own code into the text of his decision, a holding which found in favor of DVC.

The first part of the Code is a snap to crack and consists of isolated letters written in italic script, where such are never found in normally published judicial decisions. Here are the words with coded italicized letters in the order that they appear in Smith’s “Approved Judgment”:

Claimants – found in paragraph 1
claimant – found in paragraph 2
is – found in paragraph 3
that – found in paragraph 3
his – found in paragraph 3
reality – found in paragraph 3
[the italicized words thus far read “smithy”]
cynicism – found in paragraph 4
for – found in paragraph 5
preceded – found in paragraph 6
Templar – found in paragraph 7
[so far so good, the italicized letters read “code”, in sum “smithy code”]
[but now, it gets difficult]
Jersey – found in paragraph 8
able – found in paragraph 8
research – found in paragraph 9
this – found in paragraph 11 – part 3 – Writing and Publication of HBHG
techniques – found in paragraph 11
extinguished – found in paragraph 13
technical – found in paragraph 14
story – found in paragraph 15 – part 4 – The Mystery
was – found in paragraph 16
the – found in paragraph 18 – part 5 – Analysis of HBHG
something – found in paragraph 19
groups – found in paragraph 20
used – found in paragraph 21
was – found in paragraph 23
documents – found in paragraph 25
being – found in paragraph 25
eradicated – found in paragraph 25
elsewhere – found in paragraph 26
Templars – found in paragraph 27
Claimants – found in paragraph 29
sequence – found in paragraph 29(2)
with – found in paragraph 30
of – found in paragraph 31
key – found in paragraph 34
Plantard – found in paragraph 35
introduced – found in paragraph 37
manuscripts – found in paragraph 38
ultimately – found in paragraph 40
questions – found in paragraph 42
emblazoned – found in paragraph 43
prevalent – found in paragraph 43

The italicized letters thus read:
SMITHYCODE JAEIEXTOSTGPSACGREAMQWFKADPMQZV

The full code has been cracked in the interim by lawyer Dan Tench with the help of his law firm. See Peter Graff’s article,
Da Vinci judge’s secret code revealed

The Smithy code reads: “Jackie Fisher, who are you? Dreadnought”.
