A crown court judge has turned to the internet to allow him to take pre-trial hearings that clashed with his planned break in Spain, rather than cancel his holiday.
From his villa in Seville, Judge Barry Woodward accepted pleas and submissions from defendants by connecting to the court's secure website from his laptop, according to The Times.
Judge Woodward was taking part in a pilot programme being run by Minshull Street Crown Court in Manchester, which is designed to conduct administrative plea and direction hearings, and realised that pre-trial hearings for two cases clashed with his holiday.
He decided that the e-justice scheme would allow him to use the internet to communicate with barristers and solicitors without missing too much sun.
A decision will be made next month on whether to extend the pilot.
