In the Supreme Court w/c 13 July 2015
13 Monday Jul 2015
Hearings in the Supreme Court are now shown live on the Court’s website.
On Tuesday 14 July 2015 the Supreme Court will hear the appeal of Hainsworth v Ministry of Defence concerning whether a reasonable adjustments claim can be advanced by an employee who is not herself disabled but who has a daughter with down syndrome, in circumstances where the adjustment sought would enable the associated person with disabilities to undergo training/education. It will be heard in Court 2 from 10.30am.
On Wednesday 15 July the Court will hear the appeal of The United States of America v Nolan regarding the respondent’s redundancy following the closure of her US military base, RSA Hythe. The Court must decide whether, given that the CJEU had ruled that the Collective Redundancies Directive had no application to the closure of US military bases, the Court of Appeal was right to find that the UK statute went further, such that the obligations imposed by the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, s 188, applied to the closure of RSA Hythe. It will be heard in Court 2 from 10.30am.
On Tuesday 14 July the Privy Council will hand down judgment in Apollon Metaxides v Swart & Ors (Bahamas); Silver Point Condominium Apartments v Johann D Swart & Ors (Bahamas). On Tuesday it will also hear the appeal of Milton & Anor v The Queen (British Virgin Islands) concerning whether the Court of Appeal erred in holding that the conviction was safe because, although the trial judge’s treatment of individual strands of evidence was questionable, those strands nonetheless supported each other. It will be heard in Court 3 following the judgment hand downs at 9.45am. On Wednesday 15 July it will heard the appeal of Myers v The Queen (Bermuda) and other cases concerning whether the convictions of the appellant for murder and use of a firearm should be quashed because it was based on inadmissible evidence relating to gangs. This will be heard in Court 3 from 10.30am.
