The civil case between two mining giants Sumitomo and Axiom is said to be a very expensive case.
Another multi-millionaire dollar case that will require extra funding and assistance for a separate judge to hear is the Town Ground building case.
This was revealed yesterday by the Chief Justice Sir Albert Palmer at the 2015 legal year opening at the High Court.
He said the cases were expensive because an expatriate judge had to be recruited, and it took around nine months for the matter to be heard and completed.
“The significance and relevance of that case illustrates the direct connection to the socio-economic development of the nation in the work of the courts in resolving important disputes to facilitate investment and economic development.
“The litigation process however is yet to be finalized with an appeal outstanding in the Court of Appeal,” Sir Albert said.
He said this will also take up extra time of that Court with a separate sitting being considered for the first quarter of this year.
Sir Albert also highlighted the importance of having another multi-millionaire dollar case, the Town Ground building case that is also outstanding, which will also require extra funding and assistance for a separate judge to hear.
