Snippets

A few bits and pieces…

Gilboy v Liverpool CC has a hearing at the Court of Appeal on 19 or 20 May (thanks J and GCN).

Doherty v Birmingham is at the House of Lords later this year, which should be a big test for the legacy, if any, of McCann (thanks J, again)

Rumour is that Southwark are appealing R(Faarah) v Southwark. Not sure I see what the basis of appeal would be, but we’ll see.

The world of housing blogs expands still further and intriguingly, the latest addition is by a homeless officer. The nothing if not literally named A Homelessness Officers Point of View promises to ’cause comment’.

And a happy birthday to Charon QC. Long may the Rioja flow.

Giles Peaker is a solicitor and partner in the Housing and Public Law team at Anthony Gold Solicitors in South London. You can find him on Linkedin and on Twitter. Known as NL round these parts.

    NL… Thank you for your birthday wishes. I have, of course, spent the day in dissolute pursuits – blogging about the venal West London man and dining and taking of the wine with a very good friend.

    I am particularly pleased to be included – birthday wishes wise – in a list of important law reports – most apprpriate :-)

    Thanks
