Members of the legal fraternity are now saying that Chief Justice Ivor Archie has committed a serious blunder, and it is affecting the entire judicial system.
They are calling on him to step down, arguing that this is the only way by which the matter can be settled.
The Judiciary made the call in a statement released recently, however the Chief Justice has said he has no intention of stepping down.
Senior Council Israel Khan says amid a number of errors the Chief Justice has no choice but to submit his resignation.
He says the problem is that Chief Magistrate Marcia Ayers Caesar cannot just pick up where she left off.
The Chief Magistrate was appointed as a High Court Judge by Chief Justice Ivor Archie two weeks ago; however she subsequently stepped down over a situation involving a backlog of judicial cases.
Describing the Chief Magistrate as an abused wife, Senior Counsel Khan said Ayers – Caesar was being made the fall guy in the entire situation.
He has called for an investigation into the matter.
