Tim McCormack - Electronic delivery

The timeous dispatch and receipt of documents is often questioned in legal proceedings, particularly where time limits apply and penalties are incurred. Historically these claims have arisen as a result of using traditional surface mail providers, but now electronic delivery mechanisms can be used, and these can also be examined in court when they appear to fail. A question to be considered is whether the case law with regard to traditional surface mail is relevant to issues that arise from electronic delivery mechanisms.
