    The JR is not scheduled to start until next Tuesday, until it does there is nothing new to report.

    (Unless the Government cave in before JR - how likely do you think that is?)

    You can't watch or listen to court proceedings unless you turn up and sit in the public gallery.

    The recording and broadcasting of court proceedings in England and Wales is prohibited by Section 41 of the Criminal Justice Act 1925 and Section 9 of the Contempt of Court Act 1981.

    For completeness:
    The Crown Court (Recording and Broadcasting) Order 2020 (SI 2020/637) came into force on 20 June 2020 and allows cameras to broadcast the sentencing remarks of High Court and Senior Circuit judges in some Crown Courts.

    The recording can only show the Judge, and only those with permission from the Lord Chancellor can make the recording.
    (That basically restricts it to the news broadcasters, BBC, ITN, SKY News, CNN, etc.)
    Real time broadcast is not allowed, there must be at least a 10 second delay in order to check that reporting restrictions are not breached, and mistakes are not broadcast.
    (They must have very quick editors if they can do that in 10 seconds).

    But that is only the Crown Court Judges sentencing remarks made in open court, which means only criminal cases.
    So it wouldn't cover a JR which is not a criminal case.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    According to B+W the case will not go ahead at present as they can’t get a judge unbelievable there’s even talk that the case might not be heard until next year

    The website of Osborneslaw, the solicitors presenting the case, simply says:

    High Court challenge the denial of ESA increase

    The final hearing will now be held in November 2021. Further updates will be posted on this page.
    Once again the press seem suspiciously quiet about this. Presuming that reporters are actually doing their jobs and looking for stories to report.

    What other cases being are being delayed, or is it just this one?
    The government don't want his one hearing, and especially just now with all the adverse publicity about the uplift is being removed from UC this month.

    Is there a general shortage of High Court Judges to hear cases? If that is the case then why isn't it making the headlines anywhere?
    (A shortage of Crown Court Judges for criminal cases made the papers a few months ago).
    If it's not a general shortage of High Court Judges (you can see one or two being ill) then why has this particular hearing been chosen for delay? Government pressure perhaps?

    I doubt we'll get any answers to those questions.

    Perhaps it"s down to a shortage of wigs because of the HGV driver situation, HA. Or maybe DWP have asked for a delay because of the historic "womens pension scandall" they have to sort out more like. How many big rip off"s have they had to sort recently? Jees.
