Day 15 (week 3): The Appeal

Saw the Boss actually do some work today. In the grand and historical surroundings of the Lord Mayor’s Court, no less. His opponent spent an hour setting out his grounds of appeal and putting his arguments to the judge who looked decidedly unimpressed. Then it was the Boss’ big moment. He stood up and offered my Skeleton Argument to the Judge. “I’ve summarised my case in there, Your Honour. Do you have any questions arising from the points made?”

The answer came back no.

And that was it. He won, got his costs (£3,000 for the hearing, £1,500 for the Skeleton Argument) and was away.
