Lawsuit in Progress

“Please send your bloody papers.”

At the European Court of Human Rights the Swedish State has several times been found guilty of taking too long to settle the cases pending in the Swedish courts. Wherein lies the courts’ disinclination to settle cases within a reasonable period of time? Who is behind the anonymous voice at the other end of the phone line?

Lawsuit in Progress is a vision of what happens behind the courts’ plastered stone facades whilst the parties concerned are waiting for their judgments and decisions.
