Sample text

Usually a criminal case is decided before a related civil hearing comes on. The Civil Evidence Act 1968 (1971 for N. Ireland) allows a conviction to be used in subsequent civil proceedings. The conviction and the intention to rely on it must be set out in the formal civil claim. If this happened with Hazards then it would be for the company to file a defence and to prove (on the balance of probabilities) that the conviction is irrelevant or was erroneous. Dispute resolution is encouraged. In civil personal injury claims, settlement rather than court trial is a likely outcome, under the guidance of insurers.

Magistrate’s powers have been increased to impose prison sentences up to 12 months and a system of sentence discounts formalised to encourage defendants to plead guilty, as an attempt to reduce the number of jury trials. For civil cases, the Courts and Legal Services Act increases the jurisdiction of the county courts. All personal injury claims for less than £50 000 start in the county court; there is no upper limit but county court jurisdiction depends on the complexity of the case. District judges attached to the small claims courts may deal with personal injury cases for less than £5000.

Legislation specifies the qualifications for justices’ clerks. Officiating in the county court is a Circuit judge; or a District judge for small claims and interlocutory (pre-trial) matters. A Circuit judge may also sit in the Crown Court. As a result of the Courts and Legal Services Act 1990, eligibility for appointment to the bench is based on having sufficient years of right of audience (qualification) in the courts. A Circuit judge must have 10 years’ county court or Crown Court qualification, or be a Recorder, or have held other specified appointments.
