Guest Ryan Murtha Posted July 10, 2022 Share Posted July 10, 2022 I just came across a statement by Parker Woodward that Bacon was so efficient at clearing cases as Lord Chancellor, he was causing the lawyers for the Common Law courts to lose money: At this period judges and officials of the Common Law Courts had lost and were losing valuable fees and emoluments by reason of plaintiffs and petitoners to the much safer and speedier proceedings in the Court of the Lord Chancellor and his assistants . . . He had in effect taken away the work of the Common Law Courts for more speedy progression in the Chancery. This sounds plausible and likely but I had not read anything along these lines, and haven't turned up supporting statements; does anyone know more about this?
