The Civil Courts (Amendment No. 2) Order 2009

This Order amends the Civil Courts Order 1983 so as to close the Nelson County Court. It does not deal with the devolution of the business of Nelson County Court but this is transferred to Burnley County Court by direction of the Lord Chancellor after consulting with the Lord Chief Justice. By virtue of judicial direction, Burnley County Court will have jurisdiction in proceedings commenced in Nelson County Court before the coming into force of this Order.
