A busy day

So noted in passing:

Everybody’s favourite still wet behind the ears barrister, Tom Brennan, has had the full day of argument on the validity of his claim and the matter has apparently been adjourned.  Of course, the BBC don’t tell us whether Mr Brennan was successful in arguing for the validity of his claim and the matter adjourned for the hearing of its substance, or whether the Court adjourned to give its ruling later. Ho hum.

The House of Lords has begun hearing YL (by her litigation friend the Official Receiver) (FC) v. Birmingham City Council and others, the care home case, which could have significant repercussions on what counts as a public body or a body exercising a public function for the purposes of the Human Rights Act (and perhaps also Judicial Review).

The Guardian also notes the judgment in Stack v Dowden and the issues it raises for property rights for cohabiting couples. By complete co-incidence, I am working on a post on relationship breakdown and joint tenancies, hopefully to appear here soon and also hopefully as a complement to Family Lore on the topic.
