Publication Date:
20 Apr 2020


Description:

Dispute Resolution analysis: The Court granted an extension of time to file reply evidence in the context of an application of challenge the Court’s jurisdiction; despite the fact that the result of the extension of time would mean that the original hearing date would be lost. The effect of the Covid-19 pandemic was to significantly increase the amount of time required of the lawyers and experts in order to achieve the provision of the reply evidence. This was so even making the best use of available technology. Written by Christopher Snell, Barrister at New Square Chambers.
