    That is exactly why there is no justice in Dominica. The other Judge is there for too long and justice is not appeared to be served.

    So the other judge is unmovable? I think after ten years service , the civil judge should be change. The judge is not suppose to be serving that long in a country. They are suppose to be moved tevery four years. So why that judge must stay?
