Judgement reserved,

justice delayed?

THE EDITOR, Sir:

The Gleaner of Wednesday July 23, 2014 reported that the justices Marva McDonald-Bishop, Courtney Daye and David Batts who were hearing the case of Arthur Williams versus Andrew Holness had reserved judgment.

It would now be more than three months since they reserved judgment in what must be an important case concerning the Constitution of Jamaica. What could be taking them more than three months to give the judgment? If the justices can take more than three months to give judgment in a high-profile case involving Parliamentarians, we can imagine what is happening to the 'small man' whose judgment has also been reserved.
