How long will the case take?

How long the case will take depends upon a number of variable factors which are presently unknown.  It is therefore difficult to estimate how long it will take for the case to conclude.  We expect that the case will go to a fully contested court hearing at a trial commencing on 12 February 2018.  The trial will last for between 10 -12 weeks.  There is then the possibility of an appeal, which might extend the time for resolution of the case to as much as 2 further years.
