Family Law

The leading authority on all aspects of family law

APPEALS: Bracknell Forest Borough v N [2006] The Times November 6

(Court of Appeal; Thorpe, Smith and Wall LJJ; 25 October 2006)

Refusing an application to adjourn an application to appeal, which had been made because the listing clashed with a Family Division hearing in which leading counsel was involved, the Court noted that it was a well-recognised principle in the Court of Appeal that permissions applications would not be adjourned for the convenience of counsel. In a case such as the present an application should have been made for the Court of Appeal to sit early and the indulgence sought of the trial judge for the other case to start late.
