Hearings in the Supreme Court are now shown live on the Court’s website.

On Tuesday 6 until Thursday 8 June, the Supreme Court will hear the appeals of Benkharbouche v Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs and Libya v Janah. These appeals will consider whether granting immunity from suit under the State Immunity Act 1978 engages, and breaches, the respondent’s rights under the ECHR and EU Charter. These will be heard in Courtroom 1.

On Wednesday 7 June, the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council will hear the appeal of Jamaica Public Service Company Ltd v The All Island Electricity Appeal Tribunal & Ors. This appeal will consider whether the Court of Appeal erred when it found that the Tribunal correctly interpreted the term ‘managerial decision’ appearing in the Z-factor clause of the All-Island Electric Licence 2001, and whether the Court of Appeal erred in finding that there was sufficient evidence before the Tribunal to support the finding that the appellant company was capable of calculating and properly including the costs of the re-classification exercise in its 2004 tariff review. This will be heard in Courtroom 3.

On Thursday 8 June, the Supreme Court will hear a permission to appeal hearing by Constance Gates and Christopher Gard against Great Ormond Street Hospital. The couple are seeking leave to appeal against the Court of Appeal’s decision that life support be withdrawn from their baby son, as they wish to take him to the US for experimental treatment.
