    I think they might have done and that the point needs clarifying

    BIB When I highlighted the cases dismissed accessible through the CC site, the day before yesterday, I wasn't interpreting that as a positive sign for OP's appeal.
    As I said, it appears they process the appeals received in a similar way to the SCA Judges, with each CC Justice (plus their clerks/research assistants) having an allotted case-load for this pre-consideration phase so you can't infer anything of any consequence from it.

    ConCourt denies Pistorius leave to appeal, murder sentence looms
    Thursday 3 March 2016

    The court says the defence had no reasonable grounds of success.

    The Olympian will now be sentenced for murder on 18 April.

    After a discussion with other Admin this thread will remain closed. A new thread will be generated for sentencing in June so check back then please.

    Thank you
