That, to my mind, was a perfectly reasonable request and should have been granted, without leaving it to the day of the hearing for action.
The Court has a responsibility to deal with you fairly, and it strikes me, based on your statements, that the Court did not treat you fairly. That, to my mind, means that you were denied your fundamental Human Right to fair treatment.
If I have understood the facts correctly, your barrister did not do his job properly and failed to represent your interests properly. Remember, you instruct the barrister, not vice versa as so many arrogant and incompetent barristers seem to assume.
I can understand that making notes whilst giving evidence may not normally be permitted, but given that you have indicated that you have a medical issue as you describe, it is up to the bloody Court to ensure that it makes the necessary adjustments to procedure to ensure that you are treated fairly
and if your barrister was doing a proper job, he'd have ensured that you were treated fairly.
