Courts to Return to Full Capacity in Labrador

Provincial Courts in Labrador are returning to full capacity with the return of a second judge.

Ken Morrissey is the Director of Communications for the Department of Justice.

He says the Provincial Court has advised him that they are now operating at full capacity once again.

The Provincial Court has been without a second judge since Judge English had taken sick leave.

This has caused delays for the delivery of justice here in Labrador.

Morrissey says Judge English had returned to work on May 31.

He says due to the fact that court cases are set months in advance, it is difficult to reassign judges within the system on short notice.

The provincial court had received judicial help from other court centers on an ad hoc basis.
