Friday court dates rescheduled

The declaration of a public holiday for Friday, 6 November, has meant that court cases already set for that date have had to be rescheduled.

The one-time-only holiday was announced two weeks ago, on 23 October, to celebrate the commencement of the new Cayman Islands Constitution.

Clerk of Court Valdis Foldats said court staff had been working ever since to contact persons who had matters set for 6 November.

These included Youth Court, Juvenile Court, maintenance matters and civil cases in Summary Court.

Most Grand Court criminal mentions were brought forward a day.

Mr. Foldats said on Tuesday he believed almost everyone on the various lists had been contacted. However, if someone was scheduled to come to court on 6 November and has not been advised of a new date, he or she should phone the courts office, 949-4296, as soon as possible.
