Where's the judgment?

The linked story is about the failure of the system to provide judgments to two parents at Liverpool County Court.

Without the judgment they cannot appeal to the Court of Appeal. The system of correcting unlawful decisions at a lower court is, therefore, blocked.

This is not a trivial issue. It undermines the whole process of law. I am told that frequently parents' solicitors prevent the parents from getting their judgments. Without the judgment they cannot appeal either in person or through another firm.

There is an argument that you can appeal on the basis that you haven't been given the judgment. We may try that in the future. However, generally people have been bounced from the European Court and the Court of Appeal because they don't have the judgment.

At the end of last week, after The Sunday Telegraph took up the cases with the Judicial Communications Office in London, officials issued an apology within hours and finally pledged that both women would receive the vital documents within days.QUOTE

Why is it when the media became involved the documents become available.

The courts are obviously breaking the law in withholding judgments,probably to satisfy social services so that the child is settled with adopters. therefore no chance of returning home to its mother.

The underhand methods used in these courts is not much different to those in South American countries.

I don't know how these top judges can defend the courts and make out they are thinking of our best interests by keeping the courts closed.

Statement re False Allegations Campaign

Many people will know that my family and I have been subject to a campaign of false allegations by Esther Baker for the past 4 1/2 years. Yesterday there was a court judgment Baker v Hemming [2019] EWHC 2950 (QB) which formally confirmed that the allegations were false. Esther Baker, who had brought a libel claim against me, dropped her defence of Truth to my counter-claim and was taken by the judge as no longer trying to prove her allegations. Due to Baker's various breaches of court rules and orders, she has been barred from further repeating her allegations even in the court proceedings. Further claim of mine in libel against Baker are ongoing. There is a good summary in the Daily Mail here.

This demonstrates the challenge in fighting false allegations in today's Britain. A substantial campaign was built up to promote allegations which had no substance to them. Various Labour MPs and in pa…

Statement re false allegations from Esther Baker

Statement by John Hemming
I am pleased that the Police have now made it clear that there has been a concerted effort to promote false criminal allegations against me and that the allegations had no substance whatsoever.
I would like to thank Emily Cox, my children, Ayaz Iqbal (my Solicitor), my local lib dem team and many others who supported me through this dreadful experience. There are many worse things that happen to people, but this was a really bad experience.
It is bad enough to have false allegations made about yourself to the police, but to have a concerted campaign involving your political opponents and many others in public creates an environment in which it is reasonable to be concerned about ill founded vigilante attacks on your family and yourself. Luckily there was a more substantial lobby to the contrary as well, which included many people who were themselves real survivors of abuse, which has helped.
I am normally someone who helps other people fight injustice. …
