  • You appear to have overlooked the fact that the brilliant Mrs Justice Sharp was recently been appointed to the Bench, and will no doubt be sharing the workload with Eady J and Tugendhat J.

  • Surely the best candidate must be Ronald Thwaites QC and such an appointment would also accord with the overriding objective and the court's attempt to create a level playing field-He has not lost a jury libel action in six years, so the best place for him must be the bench. In fairness to The Honourable Justice Eady, I am sure that his decisions in the recent trial were an attempt to create a handicapping system in his court. Maybe His Lordship can swap places with a Mr Justice Thwaites and resume his extremely successful career as a trial advocate.

  • In his judgements Judge Eady seems to favour the rich and famous. In my privacy case concerning a book I had published - McKennitt verses Ash, which I had to defend myself at the last minute because of lack of funds, I feel this was especially true. Eady even stated in his judgement that he had to take McKennitt's fame into account and the fact that she donated anyonymously to charities.
