    presides or is presiding?


    How should I say:

    a] Judge Williams presides today as judge Thomson has been taken ill.

    b] Judge Williams is presiding today as .... .

    Is the the verb has been taken ill correctly formed in this sentence?

    Thank you again.

    Either of the sentences is fine.

    Yes, "has been taken ill" is correct.
