Weaver: Permission Refused

We’ll try and get a link to the order ASAP.

In the meantime, our post on Weaver in the Court of Appeal is here.

  1. I confess myself to be surprised. Not necessarily at the de facto outcome, but at the refusal of permission. Love to see reasons.

    • But while it was academic for Ms Weaver, how could it be said to be generally academic? Broader public interest, surely, and there is sufficient precedent for the HoL giving permission in that regard…

    • Yeah, but they don’t like doing it.

      I agree though. It wouldn’t be the first time they’ve done it and I think this is a case where it was more than justified to do so.

      As the decision of the CA is strictly obiter, I doubt it will be long before another case gets taken all the way.
