Bar votes to support the extension of Appeals Court Judge

Justice Manuel Sosa

The Bar Association met on Monday night at the Radisson Hotel. One of the issues discussed was the extension of the term of Justice Manuel Sosa as the President of the Court of Appeal for another eight years.  As News Five understands, the leader of the opposition, who is being consulted on the extension, sought the views of the Bar. The Bar voted to support the extension of Justice Sosa’s term, but that they would express their concerns about the justice’s remaining as president because of the way the Court of Appeal is currently being managed, especially in relation to the backlog of appeals.
