Not Exactly a Matinee

Just in case anyone had picked up on the nervous tension from the last post, the result was… a reserved judgment.

The others side did indeed try to spring something at the last minute, thankfully this was waved away first thing by the Court, limiting their options more than somewhat. Then, according to Counsel, it became a long drawn out grind as the other side desperately scratched at anything and everything, no matter how relevant or significant. The Court had to keep pulling them up or insist the questioning was redirected.

Due to the opponent’s faffing about, time ran out before judgment. The Court sat over time, just to complete submissions.

So, now we have to await a date for judgment. Counsel’s view is that we won, but quantum is anybody’s guess. Oh well. We’ll wait for the date.
