Chief Justice (CJ) Sir Marston Gibson will face a judge in his own court next month when a hearing comes up on September 16 in a lawsuit filed by Queen’s Counsel Vernon Smith, who accused the CJ of denying him the right to work.

Barbados TODAY has reported that Smith, who is represented by Queen’s Counsel Edmund King, has alleged that the Chief Justice breached many of his fundamental constitutional and human rights by barring him from representing his client in a case which came up before Sir Marston on April 14 this year.
