The Supreme Court has given permission to the O’Brien and Miller claimants to appeal against the Court of Appeal’s judgment on judicial pensions last year. The appeal was allowed on two issues of general importance: whether service before 7 April 2000 counts for the purpose of calculating pension entitlement; and when time starts to run for claiming a pension for part-time fee paid service by those who have moved to salaried service. The Ministry of Justice has since announced that the implementation of the Fee-Paid Judicial Pension Scheme (FPJPS) – originally due in December this year – is to be delayed. It is now likely to take place on or before 1 April 2017.
