Judges get guidance on construction cases


THE TECHNOLOGY and Construction Court is to publish new guidance for judges following a conference in central London last week.

The court's presiding judge, Mr Justice Jackson, is hoping to include extended guidance for the trial of construction cases in the White Book, the judges'bible on legal procedure.

Around 70 judges and senior barristers attended the conference.Mr Jackson said: 'It was of substantial benefit and I will be looking to publish more on case harmonisation and procedures, more in line with the extended guidance in the commercial court.'

The move comes after a senior TCC judge was criticised by the Court of Appeal earlier this year, and an unofficial survey of construction lawyers expressed doubts over judgements.
