A timely (I hope) reminder that the new rules come into force tomorrow that allow parties to agree extensions of time.
Is this going to signal the end of the Mitchell Madness? I hope so.
I hope the Courts will discourage unreasonable refusals to agree extensions; I predict that the tough “Mitchell” line will continue to apply in cases where the agreed extension of time is missed.
This, surely, is a sensible way of resolving the problem of lax compliance with procedural orders and timetables.
