Case postponed once again
July 15, 2009
This morning we learned that the judge in the case has decided to attend an international conference and thus has chosen to postpone the case until October. This decision to postpone for an international conference comes amid a battle between the judiciary and a handful of lawyers calling for them to be more accountable in the press. This does not seem to be a battle that should necessarily be fought in the press but it maqy point to a need for greater internal accountability in the justice system to ensure that litigants are according access to justice without unnecessary delays.
