The first day of the hearing was our opportunity to explain in more detail our grounds for questioning some elements of the judgement against us at the High Court hearing last February. Richard made our case very clearly (to our ears anyway). The atmosphere was relatively relaxed, the judges appeared to listen carefully to what Richard said, questioning or expanding on some points as they arose but not in a hostile way.
Richard summarised our position at the start of the second day and this was followed by SCDC’s barrister putting the counter arguments to our Grounds. The hearing was closed around 1pm.
They did not reach a judgement on the day but expect to do so within the next week or so - we now have to wait for the outcome.
