Cayman Islands Court of Appeal dismisses Cayman attorney’s appeal against conviction and sentence in road traffic case

The Cayman Islands Court of Appeal has rejected all eight grounds of appeal submitted by former corporate lawyer Simon Courtney in relation to his conviction of causing GBH to an elderly couple visiting the Cayman Islands in 2015 when he crashed his Mustang into them, near the Ritz-Carlton Hotel.

A copy of the Court of Appeal’s judgment is available for download here: CI-Court-of-Appeal-decision-re-Simon-Courtney-April-2017

A careful reading of the judgment suggests that the Court of Appeal were not at all impressed by the arguments that were made by Mr Courtney or his Counsel.

The tragedy of a case such as this is made worse by the fact that it was so utterly avoidable.
