Notorious High Court judge, Mr Justice Harman, has resigned following after the Court of Appeal said his 20-month delay in giving judgment in a case "cannot and will not be tolerated". It is thought to be the first time a High Court judge has resigned in such circumstances and a sign of a crackdown on slow acting judges. He will step down on 20 April by which time he is expected to have given judgment on his one outstanding case. The 54-page appeal judgment said conduct like Harman's "weakens public confidence in the whole judicial process. Left unchecked it would be ultimately subversive to the rule of law".
