When a matter is marked ‘not reached’ it indicates there was no judge available to hear the matter on the day it was listed for trial. The Commercial Division actively manages its lists to keep the number of not reached cases to an absolute minimum. In the unlikely situation a case is not reached, it may be offered a judicial resolution conference before a judicial registrar and will be re-listed with priority.
