Leyton Marsh: It's a joke to a judge

"I have tickets to one of the Basketball matches!" joked the judge hearing the application for an injunction by the ODA and LVRPA at the High Court against those protesting the construction of a Basketball Facility.

The Press Association claimed in its report of the hearing: 'No-one objected to him making a decision on the ODA's application.'

Not true. One of the protesters at the hearing told the judge he should stand down as he had an interest in the case. True to form, the judge paid no attention and the Press ignored the protester's comment.

Instead the judge played his part in making local people jump through hoops.
