Neuberger urges government to support judges

first_imgThe departing president of the Supreme Court has used his farewell speech to urge the government to support judges and respect the UK’s legal system.Lord Neuberger said the authority of the judiciary and the rule of law are at risk if ministers and parliamentarians do not provide appropriate support to judges in both ‘words and means’.Neuberger was speaking at his Supreme Court valedictory on Friday. The occasion marked his final sitting in the court. Another Supreme Court justice, Lord Clarke also had his valedictory on the same day. Lord NeubergerSource: Paul Grover/REXLord Neuberger was made a QC in 1987 and appointed Lord Justice of Appeal in 2004. On 1 October 2009 he became Master of the Rolls before being appointed President of the Supreme Court in 2012. Clarke spent 27 years at the bar specialising in maritime and commercial law and was appointed Master of the Rolls and Head of Civil Justice in 2005.Neuberger added: ‘The rule of law is fundamental to any civilised society, and that is never more true than in challenging times. And both an independent, respected, and effective judiciary and access to the courts for citizens are fundamental to the rule of law.‘It would be a serious error to see the economic benefits as the only purpose of our legal system. And it would be a serious error to take the high quality of our judiciary for granted.’He added the remarkable extent to which the UK is ‘probably the world’s legal centre’ is attributable to the high quality of judges, barristers and solicitors.In an allusion to the infamous headlines in the press following the Supreme Court’s judgment in the Article 50 case Neuberger added: ‘Misconceived attacks on judges undermine both the rule of law domestically and the international reputation of the legal system, with its consequential financial benefits to the country. The rule of law requires respect for judges – but it is not respect for us as individuals: it is respect for us as judges.’Lady Hale will become the next president of the Supreme Court from October who Neuberger said is an ‘impressive colleague and inspiration’ who will make an outstanding president.Neuberger said the court, under Hale’s presidency, will sit in both Belfast and Cardiff. It already heard a case in Edinburgh earlier this year as part of its aim to allow more people to see how the court works.last_img read more

In March this year, the mountain kingdom again faced a fresh crisis after parliament passed a vote of no confidence in outgoing Prime Minister Pakalithi Mosisili, reports News 24.last_img read more

When you interact with this phase, you will find out that there are over 500 new plants… including palms.” The bins are being built offsite for placement in the park.The Ministry is proud of 60 planters recently distributed in Roseau and Portsmouth meant to increase the green in both towns.Additionally, Government’s national reforestation project also has that aim – to create more green spaces with a goal of one million trees.“We expect to have in 2020, a number of trees planted and we have thus far received support from the United Nations Environment Program as we continue to expand on this initiative and we are encouraging every Dominican to join in the movement to plant trees at your home, at your schools, close to your places of worship, your workplace and within your communities.” Monday’s event at the Peebles Park featured free reusable bags for guests, live entertainment from popular acts, caroling and life-size cartoon characters for the children.last_img read more

Report: Cavs to Excercise Team Option on Jordan McRae

first_img Matt Medley is co-editor at NEO Sports Insiders, covers the Cleveland Cavaliers, Cleveland Indians and high school sports in Northeast Ohio.Follow @MedleyHoops on Twitter for live updates from games. Chris B. Haynes of Cleveland.com reported on Tuesday that the Cavs plan to exercise their team option on guard Jordan McRae.McRae signed with the Cavs in February of 2016 on a 10-day contract, but proved his worth and earned a two-year deal with the team option included.The highlight of his rookie year was the last game of the regular season on April 14 against the Detroit Pistons, when the 25-year-old erupted for 36 points.One of the interesting tidbits that Haynes points out is that McRae was close to signing a deal to play overseas before the Cavs signed him.Haynes writes:“Days before McRae was picked up by the Cavaliers, he asked his agents Jim Tanner and Derrick Powell of Tandem Sports + Entertainment to pursue an overseas deal. His representatives told him to hang in there.‘Waiting was the best thing that ever happened to me,’ McRae told cleveland.com. ‘I would have missed out on this championship. I’m so blessed.’It was quite a ride for the rookie and it’s clear the Cavs expect him to be a bigger part of their long-term future by agreeing to keep him around for the title defense.His salary for 2016-2017 is reportedly just under $1 million.
