More big cases

I can’t keep up! If things ever quieten down I’ll do a few more weighty analysis posts but in the meantime these alerter ones must suffice.

Firstly, the Medical Justice challenge to no-notice removals has succeeded: R (on the application of Medical Justice) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2010] EWHC 1925 (Admin). Permission to appeal to the Court of Appeal was granted to the Government, though. This has been trailed on this blog, and the outcome was not unexpected. This is yet another example of the authoritarian and illiberal policies of the previous Government being struck down in the courts as being a basic contravention of the rule of law.

The decision in R (on the application of Cart) v The Upper Tribunal & Ors [2010] EWCA Civ 859 on whether the Upper Tribunal can be judicially reviewed is also out, but I’m afraid I haven’t had time even to glance though it yet. More to follow if/when I have a chance.
