Mr Justice Arnold to become Lord Justice Arnold: congratulations!

Sir Richard Arnold
The IPKat has just learned that Mr Justice Arnold will become a Lord Justice of Appeal.

The following has just been published on
The Queen has been pleased to approve the appointment of Mrs Justice Carr as a Lady Justice of Appeal and the following as Lord Justices of Appeal: Mr Justice Arnold, Mr Justice Dingemans, Mr Justice Phillips and Mr Justice Popplewell.
These appointments will fill forthcoming vacancies in the Court of Appeal arising from autumn 2019.
The appointment of Lord and Lady Justices of the Court of Appeal are made by Her Majesty The Queen on the advice of the Prime Minister and the Lord Chancellor following the recommendation of an independent selection panel.
The selection panel was chaired by the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Burnett of Maldon. The other panel members were Sir Terence Etherton, the Master of the Rolls; Lord Kakkar, the Chairman of the Judicial Appointments Commission; and two former lay Commissioners of the Judicial Appointments Commission: Ms Jane Furniss CBE and Professor Emily Jackson.
In accordance with section 79 of the Constitutional Reform Act 2005 as amended by the Crime and Courts Act 2013, the panel determined the selection process to be followed. In accordance with s10(3) of the Senior Courts Act 1981, the selection exercise was open to applicants that satisfied the judicial eligibility condition on a seven-year basis or were Judges of the High Court.
As readers know, the soon to be Lord Justice Arnold has issued some of the most important and thought-provoking IP judgments of the past few years whilst sitting in the High Court of England and Wales.

He is probably also the holder of the record for the highest number of IP referrals to the Court of Justice of the European Union made by an individual judge.

The IPKat team and Merpel congratulate him on this achievement and look forward to reading more of his judgments!
