    Won’t comment too much until more details are given, but sometimes things are not always what they appear to be.

    Was this an in Court or out of Court incident?What are the details. The woman was allowed to leave Court on a $1000 bail…..a small sum for assaulting a High Court Judge!

    Is this woman a friend or reletive of the Judge?

    Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day said the government would not introduce legislation forcing internet service providers to give customer information without a warrant

    Topic: Elneth Kentish assaulted by Cecile Codrington.

    Is this Codrington related to the family whose home fell into the cave?
    What was Cecile’s motivation?

    From what I heard it happened in a supermarket involving a trolly…(serious bodily harm)? How hard can one of those things hit? If you read the article in the paper, the judge stated that they don’t tend to walk around with lables on them stating their profession. With that in mind, I think we can say that a woman was hit rather than a judge.

    Thanks, Fly on Wall. It was reported as “actual bodily harm”.
    But if this were just a careless collision, why is it an “assault case”?

    My point, as a layperson, is that if it is serious enough to be treated as a criminal assault case, then a motive must exist. As far as I know, someone bumps you by accident, then it is a civil case. Someone bumps you with a motive, or intent to harm, then it is a criminal case.

    I would hate to think that, if I accidentally bumped someone, I could be arrested and sent to jail!

  13. you know

    Actually, she didn’t “just bump” the judge. She attacked her.

    The judge accidentally bumped her a little and apologized. The woman didn’t accept the apology and attacked her.

    So, yeah. Know your facts.

    are you sure the judge apologised after she hit the woman. I saw the judge hitting the woman with the trolly and continue talking on her cell phone. not paying the woman any attention at all. when and how did the judge apolagise ?
