Hearings in the Supreme Court are now shown live on the Court’s website.
On Monday 17 to Thursday 20th October, the Supreme Court will hear the appeals in Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc v Lomas & Ors and other cases. This will be heard in Court 1 from 11am. Among the issues to be considered are the proper ranking of certain subordinate debt in an insolvency ‘waterfall’ and the scope for liability of members in an unlimited company under the Insolvency Act 1986.
On Wednesday 19th October, the Supreme Court will hand down judgment in the following cases:
R (Ingenious Media Holdings plc) & Anor v Commissioners for Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs. The panel will be Lady Hale, Lord Mance, Lord Kerr, Lord Reed and Lord Toulson. The case considers the lawfulness of disclosures made by HMRC to journalists about Ingenious Media Holdings plc and founder and CEO Mr Patrick McKenna.
R v Mitchell (Northern Ireland). The panel will be Lord Kerr, Lord Clarke, Lord Hughes, Lord Toulson and Lord Hodge. The appeal considers the extent to which bad character evidence can be relied on by the prosecution.
R (Johnson) v Secretary of State for the Home Department. The panel will be Lady Hale, Lord Kerr, Lord Reed, Lord Hughes and Lord Toulson. The appellant argues that he should not be the subject of a deportation order because he ought to have been entitled to automatic British citizenship at birth. He asserts that his deportation would be contrary to the Human Rights Act 1998, as a result of historic discrimination.
Judgments will be handed down in Court 1 from 9.45am.
The court will also hear the appeal in R (Mirza) v Secretary of State for the Home Department and other cases on Wednesday 19th October. This will be heard in Court 2 from 10.30am. The central issue is whether the Immigration Act 1971, s 3C automatically extends a person’s leave to remain pending the determination of an application to extend leave to remain, notwithstanding that the original application is invalid.
