  • 1. I highly doubt Lord Justice Etherton is joining the Supreme Court any time soon, and 2. is Lord Justice Lloyd really retiring? He is 3 years short of the mandatory retirement age for judges appointed after 1995. Is there some official announcement that proves this claim?

  • 1) Lord Justice Etherton has indeed not gone to the Supreme Court, that was an error which has been corrected - he's the new head of the Chancery division.
    2) http://www.number10.gov.uk/news/appointment-of-lord-and-lady-justices-of-appeal/. Yes, Lloyd LJ is retiring. Judges do not have to work until mandatory retirement, they can go early, as Rix LJ has done this week.

  • I am aware that judges can retire before they reach mandatory retirement. I was simply unaware that Lord Justice Lloyd was following this course since I hadn't noticed any official announcements unlike in Lord Justice Rix's case. Thank you for pointing me to the relevant announcement from Downing Street.

  • Quoting you:
    “Appointments to the CoA are made by the Queen on the advice of the Prime Minister and Lord Chancellor following the recommendation of an independent selection panel chaired by Judge LCJ”.
    Why is this so?
    Surely the “Prime Minister” should be replaced by a really independent source!
