The High Court
President’s Notice -
Electronic Delivery of Written Judgments
Due to the then prevailing Covid-19 restrictions, arrangements were made in March 2020 by the Chief Justice and the Presidents of each court jurisdiction for the electronic delivery of written judgments.
Since those restrictions have not been in place for some time, it is appropriate that confirmation be provided of the current position in relation to the electronic delivery of judgments in the High Court.
High Court written judgments may continue to be delivered electronically. This will be done by means of a copy of the judgment being sent electronically to the parties and, subject to such appropriate redactions as may be directed by the Court, a copy being posted as soon as possible on the Courts Service website. The date and time of delivery of the judgment to the parties will be notified to the parties and in the Legal Diary.
Following delivery of a judgment electronically, the matter will (unless otherwise directed by the Court in the judgment itself or elsewhere) subsequently be listed before the Court to deal with any issues arising out of the judgment, such as the precise form of order to be made and any issue in relation to costs.
Dated: 10th July, 2023
Mr. Justice David Barniville
President of the High Court
