Lord Justice Jackson to undergo cancer operation

A brief note on the judiciary website reports that Lord Justice Jackson will shortly be undergoing an operation for cancer. His absence is not expected to impede the work of the implementation of the Costs Review Final Report which will be conducted by the Judicial Steering Group in his absence.

I wish him a successful operation and a speedy recovery, first and most obviously for his sake, but also for the sake of the reforms which he has been driving through, fighting indifference and apathy as well as positive opposition.

Supporters outnumber opponents, however vociferous some of the latter may be, and Lord Justice Jackson has won the respect of many of those who oppose some of his aims. It is hoped that he will be back by October.
