    The judge said that "Wolero was...

    The following is from a local newspaper.

    The judge said that "Wolero was not entitled to terminate the contract on Aug 11, 2015", and that it was Wolero, which had breached its hire agreement with Mr Lim.

    1. Is the part in bold correct? Should "that" be removed? If not, how should it be rephrased?
    2. Should there be a comma after "Wolero", as inserted by me.

    Thanks.

    Re: The judge said that "Wolero was...

    "that" is optional in that sentence. Your addition of a comma is not correct.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
