The Magistrate's Blog (2005-2012)

This blog has migrated to www.magistratesblog.blogspot.co.uk This blog is anonymous, and Bystander's views are his and his alone. Where his views differ from the letter of the law, he will enforce the letter of the law because that is what he has sworn to do. If you think that you can identify a particular case from one of the posts you are wrong. Enough facts are changed to preserve the truth of the tale but to disguise its exact source.

White Horror Strikes - Blizzard Chaos

I have had to stay at home today, as the overnight snow has made it impossible to get to court and the sitting has been cancelled. This is the second time ever that weather has kept me away from court, the first being about three weeks ago.
How has everyone else got on? City courts with judiciary and staff living nearby should be okay, but the shires are presumably having a hard time of it.
