Does the court have the power to grant an injunction which binds unidentified people at the time when the order is granted who do not present any risk at the time of the injunction order but may do in the future? If the Court grants alternative service provisions, does the Claimant have to prove actual knowledge in an application for committal?
Two recent judgments will be of particular interest in the planning and protestor jurisdictions, but will have wider implications for injunctions and committals in other areas of law. Join FTB’s experts for a lunchtime case law update as they discuss the Supreme Court’s judgment in Wolverhampton City Council v London Gypsies and Travellers (which was Barking & Dagenham in the Court of Appeal) which is due to be handed down on Wednesday 29 November, and the judgment of Mr Justice Soole in National Highways Limited v Kirin, a committal case which has wide implications in respect of alternative service provisions for any injunction.
Speakers: Andrew Fraser-Urquhart KC, Michael Fry, Charles Forrest, Michael Feeney.
