Oh for heaven's sake!

So, I have a very busy day, with no time for any considering of judgments. Nonetheless, I am puzzling over the import of a couple of recent decisions for some clients. Then, on the way home, scanning printouts of the cases, what does my mobile’s web browser reveal to me? Two significant Court of Appeal judgments are out.

Porter v Shepherds Bush Housing Association [2008] EWCA Civ 196  on permanent trespassers and Payne v Cooper. Dramatic stuff.

S v Floyd [2008] EWCA Civ 201 (18 March 2008) on DDA and mandatory possession orders. Less dramatic, I think, but some interesting points.

Can’t the higher courts sort out a regular drip feed of housing cases, for my benefit at least? I’m only human.

I’ll try to get at least one comment up tonight – Porter first. If I’m really on a roll (unlikely), S v Floyd will also be up tonight. If not, then tomorrow.
