COURT LISTING – JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT IT COULDN’T GET ANY WORSE

I wasn’t planning a regular series on the vagaries of court listing.  I post these without comment. Both from Twitter today.

Parties not told of an adjournment

So at Court to discover case was adjourned a week ago without any Orders having been sent out or parties notified. Clients are, what shall we say… unamused and rightly so.

No interpreter – no pay either

2 week case due to start yesterday, adjourned because no interpreter. Then told today that in fact the interpreter had cancelled and there are no interpreters in the country who can assist until Friday. Losing 4 days of trial. No payment. Shambolic.
