On applications for permission to appeal to the House of Lords:
Omar v Birmingham City Council – Omar refused permission to appeal from this Court of Appeal judgment. Very disappointing given the ambiguity, to put it mildly, of the Court of Appeal judgment (look at the comments on that post).
Aweys v Birmingham City Council – Birmingham given permission to appeal. Eh? The JR and Court of Appeal judgments were clear and straightforward. So we will have to see whether Birmingham are just throwing money away.
Both odd decisions, but maybe I’m missing something. Thanks to CLP people for the information.
