Nicely judged trib­ute

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community - BY JC RE­PORTER

CITY OF Lon­don Mag­is­trates Court was packed with le­gal rep­re­sen­ta­tives to mark the re­tire­ment of Diana Black af­ter 38 years as a mag­is­trate.

Mrs Black was first ap­pointed at the age of 32 in Har­ro­gate. She trans­ferred to the City bench when her hus­band Judge Bar­ring­ton Black, the West­ern Mar­ble Arch Syn­a­gogue pres­i­dent, took up his ap­point­ment in Lon­don.

It is be­lieved that she was the coun­try’s long­est serv­ing mag­is­trate and her last case in­volved a £39 mil­lion VAT fraud.
