Many of you will be very sad to learn of the death over the weekend of His Honour Judge Rod Denyer QC. who was the Designated Civil Judge in Bristol from 2009 until his retirement in 2017.
Prior to his appointment as a Judge in 2002 (and after a spell as an academic) HHJ Denyer QC, was in practice in Bristol during a very successful career at the Bar and many local practitioners will wish to join judiciary and staff to pay their respects at a court hearing/meeting to mark his passing.
Unfortunately, due to restrictions introduced today, we are unable to hold this hearing for what may be some time. However you can rest assured that it will take place when restrictions are eased and notification of the date will be provided in due course.
His Honour Judge Barry Cotter QC
Designated Civil Judge for Avon, Somerset and Gloucestershire
