ABSTRACT
The article reports that Judge Seymour, the controversial Technology and Construction Court (TCC) judge, has been booted out of the TCC. The judge has been the cause of uproar in the legal profession since 2003 after he denounced counsel and witnesses. Seymour's extraordinary judgment in the case of "Co-op Group v. ICL" in January 2003 triggered a rash of complaints from others who had felt the sharp end of Seymour's tongue.
