‘Huge case backlog is justice system’s way of saying we don’t care’: Dr Olivarius (LBC)

‘Huge case backlog is justice system’s way of saying we don’t care’: senior lawyer

Dr Ann Olivarius tells LBC that the huge backlog of cases due to Covid is the justice system’s way of saying ‘we don’t care’ about the people of this country.

There are currently 54,000 unheard cases in the UK due to the pandemic with some already being scheduled for 2022.

Dr Ann Olivarius told LBC, “Things have been not good and they’re getting steadily worse.”

“You can’t be a country that values its people when you actually don’t have a rule of law that works. If people cannot file cases, if people have been hurt criminally and they can’t get a hearing, they can’t get justice, then they cannot heal. The problem is not solved.”

I will always be grateful for your unwavering support of me. Equally, I will always be grateful for showing me how to find my voice and strength.

Compared with other law firms I’ve worked with, no one matches the combination that McO has of experience, brilliance, ferocious fighting and deep empathy for their clients.

Dr Holly Atkinson, Atkinson et al v. Mount Sinai Health System, Inc. et al

Because my case could not bear public scrutiny, a very powerful institution used massive financial resources to try to crush me for asking for my disability rights. This was a huge mistake, as they didn’t know that I would obtain McO representation. I couldn’t ask for better representation.
