REPEAL OF PRACTICE NOTE - RELEASE OF COURT OF APPEAL RESERVE JUDGMENTS BY EMAIL
Beginning 14 February 2017, the Court will cease e-mailing reserve judgments to the parties after their release at 9:30am. Instead, the judgments will be available on the internet at or before 10:00am under the “Judgments” section of the Court of Appeal’s website on the day of release. This will result in greater predictability for the parties who will no longer have to “wait” for an email as well as reducing the need for staff to email judgments. As a consequence of this change, Release of Court of Appeal Reserve Reasons for Judgment by E-Mail (Civil & Criminal Practice Note, 19 September 2011) will be repealed effective 14 February 2017. This change will not affect oral judgments, copies of which may continue to be requested where necessary in accordance with the process outlined in the Court’s Record and Courtroom Access Policy at sections 1.11.5 - 1.11.6.
