Judges do not always reach a decision at the time that the trial finishes. In group claims, you can normally expect that if a case has gone to trial, there are good reasons for it, so it, so judgment will be reserved (i.e given once the Judge has had time to consider and write it) more often than not. The time it takes a Judge to “hand down” a reserved judgment will depend on his / her workload and can occasionally take more than a month. This can be frustrating as you have no real idea of how the trial went and what to do next until you see the judgment.
