Supreme Court Practice Direction 17/2012

I refer you to the civil case management practice direction 17/2012, which is based on an “expectation that most proceedings will be ready for trial or otherwise resolved within 180 days of the filing of the defence”. If not, the court “will impose directions to ensure the proceeding is prepared for trial with appropriate sanctions for non-compliance” and that if not actioned will be “deemed resolved” until reactivated by the order of the court.

It is in far more specific terms than practice direction 4/2002.
