First live stream of Court of Appeal hearing starts tomorrow

Date:14 NOV 2018
The first Court of Appeal (Civil Division) hearing to be live-streamed in full will start on Thursday 15 November as a public pilot for a new service designed to increase public access to the work of the court. 

If the pilot is successful, the Master of the Rolls will seek an amendment of the existing Statutory Instrument to enable family appeals to be live-streamed, a move supported by senior family judges. 

The Courts and Tribunals Judiciary said that the case due to be streamed is between West Ham United and E20 — which manages the former Olympic stadium — regarding the seating capacity that should be made available to the football club for home fixtures at the London stadium in Stratford, East London.

Cases are selected for streaming via the court itself. The public pilot will be subject to an evaluation before live-streaming is extended.

The live stream can be watched on the judiciary  website.
