T v Manchester goes to the Supreme Court

May 28th, 2013 by Robin Hopkins

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.
