Litigants in person set to rise

first_imgThe Law Society has warned that the courts could be ‘thronged by countless individuals unable to have a lawyer, like a scene from Pickwick Papers’, if the government presses ahead with legal aid reforms without conducting research on the likely effect on the number of litigants in person. The Ministry of Justice green paper, published in November, proposes excluding from legal aid all private law children and family matters where domestic violence is not present. The paper says: ‘We recognise that the proposals to reduce the scope of legal aid will, if implemented, lead to an increase in the number of litigants representing themselves in court in civil and family proceedings. This may potentially lead to delays in proceedings, poorer outcomes for litigants (particularly where the opponent has legal representation), implications for the judiciary, and costs for Her Majesty’s Court Service.’ In the green paper, the Ministry of Justice accepted that there is little evidence on the impact that litigants in person have on the conduct or outcome of proceedings. However, it cited research conducted in 2005, claiming that this concluded that there was no significant difference in terms of court time between cases conducted by a litigant in person and those where clients were represented by lawyers. The Law Society said the green paper had failed to report that the 2005 research concluded that litigants in person found it hard to participate in their cases and, where they did, often damaged their own interests and created more work for their opponents and the courts. Law Society chief executive Desmond Hudson said: ‘There is no doubt that under legal aid cuts, the number of litigants in person will increase. Figures from the government’s own impact assessment show the number of family cases funded by legal aid will reduce by 53,000, with mediations increasing by 3,000. ‘Society will be shocked to see our courts thronged by countless individuals unable to have a lawyer, like a scene from Pickwick Papers.’ Elspeth Thomson, Resolution spokeswoman and partner at Newcastle firm David Gray, said: ‘The MoJ recognises that there is little evidence about the impact of an increased number of litigants in person, yet it is rushing headlong into it. More research should be done.’last_img read more

A Look Back on Northeast Ohio’s Fantastic Baseball/Softball Season

NEO HS Staff By Patrick KennedyIt was a great baseball season for Northeast Ohio.We got the matchup we were hoping for, an all Northeast Ohio state championship.Jackson won its second state title in school history.Strongsville reached the state final.Tallmadge won the Division II State Championship and had a great season. What’s even more remarkable is their whole team (save for one senior) is back for 2018.Elyria won a state title in softball, winning in walkoff fashion in an instant classic.Hoban reached the softball state championship in Division II and played a great game, losing by one run.Warren Champion won Division III in softball and baseball, defeating Berlin Hiland (also not a long journey away from Cleveland). Although they’re not quite in NEO Sports Insiders’ coverage range, it was impossible not to notice what they were doing from not too far away.Players like Xavier Moore, Dillion Dingler, Kyle Nicolas, Jaret Beechy, Sammie Stefan, Lauren Shaw and many, many more will be missed by their respective teams and by their fans.These seniors departing gives new young players a chance to transform into the next stars of Northeast Ohio.This season went by quick, but also felt long at times with the rainouts. It was very enjoyable as we received the opportunity to see teams who were overlooked in the preseason flourish throughout the season and Playoffs.We have also seen teams that were supposed to be great, be not so great.That’s the great thing about baseball, anything can happen on any day and that’s why you play the games.Thank you for a great season coaches, fans, players and everyone involved.
