New approach to summary assessment

Nice story from Michael Cook, author of Cook on Costs, writing in the New Law Journal:

My early legal life in Leeds was full of characters. There was the chairman of the West Riding bench who, after they had found a man guilty of a weights and measures offence, was told that the prosecution was seeking costs of over £1,000. With fine Yorkshire commonsense he responded: “Nay lad, we don’t find him that guilty.”


  1. Simon, I am shocked and rather disappointed that you have not mentioned the relocation of the SCCO in May…
