When are judgments final? The UK Supreme Court has the final word.
The point at which a judgment becomes final, and when and if parties can seek amendments to it was recently considered by the UK Supreme Court in the case of AIC Ltd v Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria1.
This is an issue of relevance to practitioners and courts users, and as highlighted by the Supreme Court:
“This problem may arise at all levels in civil litigation, from interim and case management hearings, to final orders made at the end of a trial and even to orders made, but not yet sealed on appeal.”
