The Supreme-ish Court. Again

Looks like the UK Supreme Court’s having a wee holiday from posting judgments (or as they call them, Decided Cases) on its website.

The last case listed is [2010] UKSC 10, from the beginning of March. BAILLI however has the text of all judgments up to [2010] UKSC 32, this July.
What’s going on? Why are cases not being posted to the UKSC website? I can’t find if there’s an announcement about the cases being posted to BAILLI instead, as the news section only goes back to mid-June 2010, and the archive section only lists information from 2009. What’s happened to the news that happened between 2009 and June 2010?
But hey, at least they managed to publish their annual report and accounts yesterday. Wonder how much of it went into web design…? From the annual report:
Our website
The Court is a modern institution on an international stage. Our website http://www.supremecourt.gov.uk continues to be a success with a wide audience and contains a considerable amount of information for people interested in the Court, its Justices and judgments. This material includes: current cases coming before the court with brief details of the points of law to be considered: full judgments handed down and their press summaries. The website also has information about how to appeal, the history of the building and the art within it; corporate information about the administration of the court, and biographical details of the Justices and officials.”
Uh-huh. Sure.

  1. This is wierd… The UKSC blog appears to be more up-to-date than the website, they publish judgments as and when they are handed down. E.g. [2010] UKSC 32 is available here: http://ukscblog.com/new-judgment-southern-pacific-securities-05-2-plc-in-substitution-for-southern-pacific-personal-loans-ltd-v-walker-anor-2010-uksc-32 and they update a table of cases too http://ukscblog.com/table-of-cases (although there's no separate RSS feed just for cases, you have to subscribe to the whole blog). I've given up trying to find anything on the website itself, I just subscribe to the blog now!

  2. @woodsiegirl It was actually hunting for that particular case that triggered my moan! PLC also give links to the BAILLI versions rather than the UKSC site…it's truly odd that the website of the highest court in the UK has some of the most gawd awful design/updates!
