T v Manchester goes to the Supreme Court

One of the most important privacy judgments of the year thus far has been that of the Court of Appeal in R (T & others) v Chief Constable of Greater Manchester & others [2013] EWCA Civ 25, on which Chris Knight blogged in January. In a nutshell, the Court of Appeal held that the criminal records disclosure regime (including the exceptions to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974) violated Article 8 ECHR.

Permission has been granted for a further appeal to the Supreme Court, which will hear the case on 24 and 25 July of this year. Watch this space.
