The first comment on this Daily Mail article Blinkered arrogance and a judiciary in danger of losing the public’s confidence was: “in danger of losing our confidence? They have already lost it.”
This refusal of Maurice’s appeal by Mr Justice Kitchin demonstrates to me:
- no matter how hard we try, it just doesn’t seem worth it: “they” are always right
- the judge is not interested in the spirit of fairness, empathy or, god forbid, sympathy with Maurice
- the judge is determined NOT to let Maurice get anywhere with his legal proceedings.
The questions that arise for me at this point are:
- will Litigants in Person ever have a chance in this adversarial system of lawyers fighting lawyers at the expense of the litigants?
- in this “Judges survey: Judgment day” Mr Justice Kitchin is called “a star in the making” – what does that mean for an “Appellant in Person” rather than fellow lawyers?
- if Justice is put on Trial by The Guardian, who judges the judges and by which yardstick?
It’s strange: my nephew who is studying law tells me that common sense seems to be missing most of the time…
