The problem of late and multiple adjournment of trials

  • FOIL

FOIL has received numerous complaints from members at current listing practice across the country, which is resulting in frequent late adjournment of trials, often at the last minute. Data collated by the Fraud SFT has shown that in some courts 50% of listed trials are adjourned. It is not uncommon for trials to be adjourned three or four times. Considerable costs are incurred on both sides in wasted counsels’ fees and setting aside the arrangements for the hearing and undertaking the work again when the trial is re-listed.
