Oh how wrong they were.
On Friday the occupation's lawyers successfully argued for more time to prepare a proper defence and convinced the court that this was not as cut and dried as the UCL plaintiff sought to purport - there was a proper case to be heard. The court adjourned the hearing until today - Tuesday 7th December.
Today, the court heard detailed arguments from lawyers representing UCL management, and lawyers representing the occupation. Unable to make an immediate decision, the hearing was adjourned at 4 O'Clock today, with a decision expected tomorrow morning.
Well done the occupation.
