COURT OF APPEAL HEAR CASE BY VIDEOCONFERENCING
Fairly soon, I am sure, the holding of hearings remotely will become such a commonplace that they will pass without comment. In the interim, however, it is worthwhile noting that the Court of Appeal heard an appeal on the 26th March, and gave judgment today, by videoconferencing.
In Genentech Inc. v The Comptroller General of Patents  EWCA Civ 475 the Court of Appeal were considering an appeal from the Patents Court. The appeal was due to go ahead on the 26th March but was heard remotely.
