E-mail Communications

E-mail Communications in relation to the Technology and Construction Court

Electronic Working under the provisions of Civil Procedure Rules Part 5, Practice Direction 5C is not currently available. The judges’ clerks all have e-mail addresses identified in this legal Encyclopedia. They welcome communication from the parties electronically. In addition, by agreement with the judge’s clerk, it is also possible to provide documents to the Technology and Construction Court electronically. However, it should be noted that HM Court Service imposes a restriction on the size of any e-mail, including its attachments. Larger attachments can be submitted by CD/DVD. Further, the provision of substantial documents electronically is to be used only with the permission of the judge and when time is short. The Technology and Construction Court Service is not to be used as an outsource for printing. Depending on the particular circumstances of an individual trial, the assigned judge may ask for an e-mail contact address for each of the parties and may send e-mail communications to that address. In addition, the judge may provide a direct contact e-mail address so that the parties can communicate directly with him out of court hours. In such circumstances, the judge and the parties should agree the times at which the respective e-mail addresses can be used. Every e-mail communication to and from the Technology and Construction Court or a judge must be copied simultaneously to all the other parties. The subject line of every e-mail should include the name of the case (abbreviated if necessary) and the claim number.
