The next pointer is in the names of the parties involved. By reading the names of the parties in the cases, one can identify high-profile cases and cases that may be of public interest. Are there public names and people in the list of cases? Big companies? A tax case involving the famous local hotel could be interesting. A case with a service company impacting the lives of many people can provide insights. The caveat, however, is that names are withheld for cases involving minors and some family matters. The list of cases also mentions the nature of the proceedings at the various stages of the case, such as mentions, mentions of instruction, preliminary hearings, notice of hearing of the application, mitigating hearings, oral arguments, hearings, decisions. These are explained on a separate page on RoGGKenya.org.

Philip Ogeto For higher courts, it is also advisable to consider the composition of the chamber indicated in the list of cases. These include the High Court, the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court. Some judges are known for their specialization in certain subjects, so it is good to study the profile of judges and their past decisions. If the Chamber has three or more judges hearing the case, it indicates that it is a high-profile case. The list of causes is silent on what exactly is at stake in a case. Here`s what you need to understand to prepare for a proper report.
There are basically four ways to do this: The most reliable way is to read the file with this case number. As a general rule, you have the right to inspect it at the court registry and all interested parties (if they are willing to present it to you). The second option is to question court clerks and officials about cases that merit reporting. We are preparing an article on “why you should be friends with the clerk”. Third, you can meet or call the lawyers of the parties involved. The fourth option is to contact the parties to the case named in the list of cases. It may not be easy to find their phone numbers, but at least some informants will be present when the case is mentioned, where you can ask them questions or ask them to take a look at the file. However, don`t expect much information from the mention itself. At first glance, the lists seem to be just boring and simple administrative information for the people involved. But then: first, look at the abbreviations in the case numbers to find out what might be interesting. The abbreviation indicates the nature of the case: a constitutional complaint (PC) to the High Court in your reporting area? It might be helpful to talk about that.
A request for review of an administrative decision of the County Government (JR)? It is a conflict between citizens and the state and often of political interest. And then, of course, there are criminal cases, abbreviation (CR). You can also identify criminal cases and appeals very easily, since the Republic (R) is always involved in the case as one of the parties). The full file number begins with one of the abbreviations, followed by a number, a slash and the year in which the case was filed. For a list of abbreviations we can explain, please click below.

As a journalist, you don`t have to rely on other media news, advice or hearsay if you want to find court cases worth postponing. Try the lists of causes first. This is the timetable for cases to be heard by a court in the near future.
Using the list of causes, you can be the creator of an exclusive report, you start digging it up yourself instead of chewing what is in the news anyway. In addition, the case lists of the Court of Appeal, the Supreme Court and the Supreme Court contain the names of the law firms or lawyers representing the parties. A glance at the list of cases could show you cases of great interest, depending on the lawyer or law firm. Some law firms are recognized for their expertise in specific cases and the type of clientele they represent. The same goes for the lawyers in the case. In public interest disputes, it is common to come across the names of public interest organizations and Okiya Omtatah, who is a well-known public interest litigation activist and representing minorities, marginalized groups in society. It is also useful to give priority to cases involving a large number of interested parties and amicus curiae (literally: “friends of the court” who are invited to give their opinion as experts in the relevant field).
