there are quite a few cases to cover.

Ahmad, R (on the application of) v London Borough of Newham [2008] EWCA Civ 140  on determining priority in allocation schemes.

G, R (on the application of) v London Borough of Southwark [2007] EWCA Civ 1506  on accommodation under s.20 Children Act 1989.

London Borough of Lambeth v Debrah [2007] EWCA Civ 1503 on refusal to stay or suspend an ASB possession order.

I also want to do a note on a case reported in the Gazette, but not on Bailii yet, Mansfield DC v Langridge (2008) CA (Civ Div).

But it has been a very intense week and my brain stopped working at about 6.45 this evening, so I’ll try to get notes up tomorrow.

    Thanks Mark, that had slipped under the radar. Not sure how, I get House of Lords alerts by email.

    I’ll add it to the list – or do it with R(G) v Southwark.

    I know – I get them. I somehow missed the Hammersmith one.

    Funny how ignoring the meagure comma can result in completely the wrong interpretation. Perhaps I’m not suited to be a lawyer after all.
