Judgments in relation to the Technology and Construction Court

Depending on the length and complexity of the trial, the judge may (a) give judgment orally immediately after closing speeches; (b) give judgment orally on the following day or soon afterwards; or (c) deliver a reserved judgment in writing at a later date. If a party wishes to obtain a transcript of an oral judgment, it should notify the judge’s clerk so that any notes made by the judge can be retained in order to assist the judge when correcting the transcript.

Where judgment is reserved

The judge will normally indicate at the conclusion of the trial what arrangements will be followed in relation to (a) the making available of any draft reserved judgment and (b) the handing down of the reserved judgment in open court. If a judgment is reserved, it will be handed down as soon as possible. Save in exceptional circumstances, any reserved judgment will be handed down within 3 months of the conclusion of the trial. Any enquiries as to the progress of a reserved judgment should be addressed in the first instance to the judge’s clerk, with notice of that enquiry being given to other parties. If concerns remain following the judge’s response to the parties, further enquiries or communication should be addressed to the judge in charge of the Technology and Construction Court. If the judge decides to release a draft judgment in advance of the formal hand down, this draft judgment will be confidential to the parties and their legal advisers. Solicitors and counsel on each side should send to the judge a note (if possible, agreed) of any clerical errors or slips which they note in the judgment. However, this is not to be taken as an opportunity to re-argue the issues in the case.
