Ford introduces moratorium in fee-paid tribunal judicial pension cases
Following a recent decision of the UK Supreme Court in the case of O'Brien v Ministry of Justice (MOJ), Justice Minister David Ford, has written to the Lord Chief Justice of Northern Ireland to put in place a moratorium for the tribunal judiciary sitting in tribunals for which his Department is responsible.
The purpose of the moratorium is to remove the need for potential claimants to lodge a "protective" claim from 1 May 2013.
From 25 February 2013 the general civil jurisdiction has increased:
County Court Judge from £15,000 to £30,000
District Judge from £5,000 to £10,000
Civil Bills should be lodged through the Civil Processing Centre. Click here for more information on the increases.
