In previous posts (here, here and here) we reviewed the then available permission decisions for Michaelmas Term 2009 and Hilary Term 2010. Since we last posted, the Supreme Court has provided two lists of permission decisions – previous lists covered every few months (October 2009 to February 2010; February to March 2010 and March to April 2010).

These lists are still provided in PDF, and we’ve commented before about whether it is possible to have a “live list” of cases in date order – including links to the “Current Cases” and the neutral citation of the decision being appealed against?  It would also be helpful if  a “Current Case” entry was created every time permission was given.

The May and June lists reveal that there have so far been 40 permission decisions in Easter and Trinity Terms, with permission refused in 26 cases and granted in 12 (30%) cases. This is a drop from Hilary Term, where 46% of applications were granted.

In addition, the outcome in R (Riniker) v Employment Tribunals and Regional Chairman (UKSC 2010/0050) is noted as being “no jurisdiction” and no outcome is given in Re Liam Campbell for a writ of Habeas Corpus (Northern Ireland) but an oral hearing is noted.

The Incorporated Council of Law Reporting’s list of permission decisions can be found here. Unlike the Supreme Court’s lists, they provide the media neutral citations for the cases where a permission application is made.

The cases in which permission has been granted are as follows:
