Judges must stop insulting each other, Supreme Court President warns at conference held at CCLS

Published:

Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury, Britain’s most senior judge, urged lawmakers to stop their “abuse” and “hyperbolic criticism” of one another in their judgements because they risk undermining the authority of the judicial process. Speaking at a conference at the Centre for Commercial Law Studies, he told QMUL students that “when it comes to writing a judgment in which a judge considers a colleague’s judgment in the same case, I deprecate any sort of abuse or hyperbolic criticism.”
