Legal Aid Online power interruption

Posted on: Thursday, October 18, 2012

As a result of a power source failure, Legal Aid Online will be unavailable for the next 12 to 24 hours. Please be advised that accounts will not be processed today and payments to lawyers will be delayed one day.
This issue is unrelated to hardware problems the portal experienced earlier this week.  The power supply to the servers in our data centre location is currently being stabilized, and the power source is being replaced to bring the site back online.

LAO thanks you for your patience and understanding, and apologizes for the inconvenience.
