Lord Justice Jackson has won a Golden Bull award from the Plain English Campaign for one of the year’s “best” examples of gobbledygook.
This was from an excerpt from his Review of Civil Litigation Costs: Final Report on page 184.
“Personal injuries litigation is the paradigm instance of litigation in which the parties are in an asymmetric relationship, as discussed in chapter 9 above.”
The Plain English Campaign suggested that perhaps Lord Jackson could have said:
“Personal injuries cases are the examples of court cases between different parties.”
As Solicitors Journal pointed out: “Sadly this appears to make no sense”.
