The article reports on the controversy surrounding the promotion of four judges to the Court of Appeal with three of the appointments coming from the Queen's Bench Division (QBD) and one from the Family Division, but none from Chancery Division in Great Britain. The decision demontrates the growing influence of the QBD, considered some years ago to be somewhat inferior to the Chancery Division in terms of quality of judges.
