Chief Justice wants analytical framework to manage court cases so judges won’t have to work while on vacation
Chief Justice Bryan Sykes is recommending that an analytical framework be established to manage court cases effectively, so judges would not have to work while on vacation.
The problem was cited by the President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Patrick Brooks who notes that judges often write judgements while on leave.
They were addressing this morning’s swearing-in ceremony for appeal judges, puisne judges, and masters-in-chambers.
Justice Sykes says allowing judges to go on leave without working is within grasp, but there needs to be a system, where the cases are examined and managed.
He pointed to the gun courts, where the vast majority of cases are linked to the issue of identification, and do not demand a lot of resources.
