The first certificate is from counsel and must be filed in the court file within 10 days. It reads like this
The second certificate is issued by the defendant and must be filed at the same time, and as part of defense counsel’s certification. It reads like this:
These forms are worth careful thought. As I indicated above, I am tentatively inclined to think these forms, with appropriate modifications, are worth using as a part of my standard practice. I am interested in knowing what others think.
PS Many thanks to Tom Withers.
