High Court hearing –first day – points advantage for CATI.
FIRST DAY NEWS FROM HIGH COURT Tuesday 17 Dec.
Pauline’s lawyer, Alex Goodman, laid out his case for much of today, explaining why Cardiff Council’s repeated delay to enforce against Viridor’s unlawful building work and failing to require retrospective permission was unique in British law. Then Cardiff Council’s lawyer took 80 minutes, making brash assertions, some obviously in error, and was unable to grapple with the detailed legal points of our side. The Cardiff Council ethos - assert authority with confidence - to steamroller criticisms. Tomorrow comes Viridor’s lawyer, rumoured to be costing over £200 000.
The Court starts at 10am and is expected to complete the case in the morning – if you can, do call in and support Pauline’s team!
