Updates on the Totally Wicked legal challenge (UPDATED)

Yesterday Totally Wicked published a report on the hearing that was held on the 1st of October. This hearing is "the oral stage" of the whole process, where TW's barrister got 20 minutes to present his arguments and the EU institutions and member states (UK, France and Spain) contesting the case got 15 minutes each. The next stage is ... the Judgement stage:
We will get an opinion from the Advocate General on the 17th December. In around 80% of cases, the judges do follow this, and the actual ruling will be given in the early part of next year.
Hopefully the Advocate General is able to see that the gateway theory is a product of certain peoples imagination and has nothing to do with reality, that the health risks are only applicable to certain peoples "smoking-robots" and that dying babies ... well ... is a good sign that they don't have many real arguments to present. 

Totally Wicked have published a guide to the process here, and I also recommend following Clive Bates' post on the case which seems to be updated as we're moving along.

UPDATE: Totally Wicked also published a press release on the case today. You can read it here.

  1. My ex husband and I have been divorced now for two years. He remarried one year ago. Last year him and I were still talking, he was engaged at the time and I didn't know. We were meeting eachother at the park, talking, emailing, and went out to dinner one time. The entire time he told me I was the love of his life and that he didn't love this woman he is now married to. Of course my response to him was that he was also the love of my life as well. I was the one that asked for the divorce, and it was the biggest mistake of my life. This man is the only man I've ever truly loved and I am unable to love another man. When his fiance found out we were talking she broke all communication..Changed his phone number, deleted his email account etc. I've had no way of contacting him and I also have changed my number so he doesn't have anyway of contacting me either. I feel desperate, I feel like a crazy person because I can't stop these racing thoughts that control my life every single day. I just need to know how he feels. The very last time we talked he told me he could never love another woman again, and now he's married. What do I do? I cry myself to sleep every night. I can't listen to music, I'm afraid to go places for fear I'll see him with her. And when I do go to various places I think of him...Everything reminds me of us. I just want him back, he's my everything!! I love him so much!!!, i never wanted to check the internet for spell casters because i believed that they are all scam, but a child hood friend of mine told me to give it a try and contact a spell caster which i did, i contacted Chief Nwaluta Mallam Zack and was doubting his powers, because he assured me not to worry about anything that all will be well, he did the spell for me and now my ex husband is back in my life and our marriage is saved with the help of Chief Nwaluta, here is his email if you are going through cases like this { Nwalutaspelltemple@gmail.com }. Thank you chief i really appreciate.
