Why did verdict take seven years?

It is great to hear that triumph has ruled for the families of our two firemen killed when the fireworks factory exploded.

What however can be the excuse for this verdict to have taken seven years to come to fruition? How much has this cost us, the taxpayers/ratepayers, in legal fees just for lawyers to banter questions at each other for no other useful purpose than that of swelling their coffers? With cases taking this long, it is surely time for our legal departments to be given a hard kick up their backsides.
