A High Court judge has been fined and given six points on his licence for using his mobile phone while driving.

Mr Justice Morris was given “formal advice” from the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office (JCIO) after the incident.


The JCIO did not reveal the details of the offence or how much Mr Morris was fined.

The judge, who hears cases in the Queen’s Bench Division of the High Court, “accepted responsibility for his actions and apologised unreservedly2.

A spokesperson for the JCIO said:

“The Lord Chancellor and the Lord Chief Justice have issued Mr Justice Morris with formal advice after he received six penalty points and a fine for using his mobile phone whilst driving.

“In reaching their decision, they took into account that the judge reported the matter promptly, accepted responsibility for his actions, and apologised unreservedly.”
