El Naschie v Nature starts Monday morning

The Queen's Bench List for Monday, 31 October 2011 accessible at now contains the following entry:

Monday, 31st October 2011
At half past 10
Jury List

TLJ/10/1474 El Naschie v MacMillan Publishers Ltd

So the wheels of justice are turning. Why Mrs. Sharp is doing this and not Mr. Eady is a mystery.

She is undoubtedly Dame Victoria Madeleine Sharp, DBE. Like Mr. Eady, she was previously a member of Chambers at One Brick Court, according to their Barristers page. There seems to be a book about her.

Despite his presidential candidacy, Mohamed El Naschie has not made any public appearances in Egypt for ten days or so. Presumably he has returned to England to prepare for the trial, because if he were using the campaign as an excuse not to show up he'd be doing speeches and interviews.

El Naschie has told the Court that he has no money to pay lawyers and so will be representing himself.

UPDATE: In the comments, Shrink notices that Mr. Justice Eady has something scheduled at the same time as Mrs. Justice Sharp's session. It looks like Eady is no longer involved at all in El Naschie v Nature.

It is amusing to look through the El Naschie Watch visitors log these days. MacMillan/Nature offices all over the world are checking in frequently. You are welcome here, people. But may I paraphrase JFK and suggest you ask not what El Naschie Watch can do for you, but what you can do for El Naschie Watch?

Come on. Do it! Any tidbit about the Trial of the Century will be gratefully received and lovingly posted for the enjoyment of all our readers. Your identity will not be revealed.

  1. Take a look at this .

  2. So, MRS JUSTICE SHARP took over "El Naschie v MacMillan Publishers Ltd" and the change of a judge implied the change of Case No. Well, I'm only guessing. :)

    BTW: Thanks for the short, but hilarious video, H. Some lines:

    Interviewer: "This is commendable. Your so proud of your Egyptian nationality..."

    The Great Man: "It's not pride, it's hatred. It's not because I love, but because I hate."

    Interviewer: "You hate these societies so much that you refused their passports."

    The Great Man: "Exactly."

  3. Jason, have you noticed that an oral hearing before MR JUSTICE EADY will be held at the same time (half past 10) in the nearby court room (COURT 13):

    COURT 13
