Sleeman v Highway Care Ltd: CA 3 Nov 1999

Where a court faced a situation where the time for oral submissions had overrun, it was open to him to order written submissions. He had the discretion whether or not to order sequential submissions or exchange, and could choose not to allow final oral submissions. Once having heard oral submissions, much was to be lost by delay in which the advantage of fresh impressions might be lost.
