A new Judge of Appeal has been appointed on the Isle of Man.
Jeremy Storey will succeed Geoffrey Tattersall, who has held the position for 20 years.
Mr Storey has been appointed by Her Majesty The Queen and will act as a judge of the High Court, presiding over the Appeals Division, for five years.
As an Acting Deemster since 1999, he has a good working knowledge of the Isle of Man’s Courts.
Until now the Judge of Appeal has been a part time role, but a review of the role determined that it should be a full time position, with additional responsibilities to include actively promoting and enhancing confidence in the Isle of Man and its judiciary, both locally and internationally.
Arrangements for the official swearing in of Mr Storey will now be progressed.
