GroundUp News has launched a system to publicly keep track of late judgments (view it here) to provide an incentive for judges to hand down their judgments in time. Our system currently records that 115 cases were reserved for more than six months and have not yet been handed down, but there may be many more. We encourage lawyers and litigants to add to the system (using this form).
When the court hands down judgment, you can let us know with the same form. We will not share your identity.
