District Judge Robert Hill is a member of the Civil Procedure Rules Committee and was a member of the sub-committee which drafted the new RTA Protocol and the consequential changes.
Writing in the Law Society Gazette on the new rules he states: "Whatever your question, it is answered in the RTA Protocol or in PD8B or in the amended rules". Really? If so, why has that bottle of champagne not been claimed (see earlier post)?
The competition is open to the judiciary too, even those who helped draft the rules.
