Vexatious Requests and the EIR: Case Closed?

March 6th, 2017

Anyone remember Craven v Information Commissioner & DECC? The EIR vexatious request case heard with Dransfield? Court of Appeal decision back in mid-2015? Well, word reaches us at Panopticon that the Supreme Court has just issued an Order refusing Mrs Craven permission to appeal.Specifically, the Court reasons that the appeal is very considerably out of time (erm, yeah), that the European Court of Human Rights arguments are new and without merit, and the Court of Appeal is “plainly correct” on the meaning of vexatious. So there we have it. Case closed. Until the next time…
