    Recently David Steel tried to remove some property owners’ right to representation because of case duplication.

    The argument was put forward that if a party wishes to be represented it should have the right.

    David Steel took the pragmatic approach. He decided that they could stay in the proceedings on the basis that costs were at their own risk.

    That to me seems absolutely on the money. He tried to shorten the case but after listening to the evidence decided it wouldn't be in the interests of justice.

    That's as it should be. Justice is paramount.

    David has a level head on his shoulders and in this so far has proved himself to be a sensible judge.

    We need more judges like him at the bench. Forward-thinking but open to others ideas.
