Listed for 1.5 days from this morning is the appeal of Clyde & Co LLP & Anor v Winklehof. The appellant, an English qualified solicitor, was a member of the first respondent LLP who worked predominantly in Tanzania and had a separate employment contract with a law firm there. She reported that a partner in the Tanzanian firm had been involved in money laundering and bribery and was dismissed from that firm, and, following an investigation, ultimately expelled as a member of the first respondent. The issue for the Supreme Court is whether a member of a limited liability partnership is a worker within the meaning of the Employment Rights Act 1996, s 230(3) and is therefore within the category of persons protected by the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 and permitted to bring a whistleblowing claim. The hearing can be followed on Supreme Court Live.

In Courtroom 2 on Wednesday 26 March 2014 is R (Whiston) v Secretary of State for Justice. In this matter the appellant, a determinate sentence prisoner, applied for judicial review of the respondent’s decision to revoke his release under the Home Detention Curfew Scheme. The Court will determine whether this decision engaged either art 5(4) or art 6 of the ECHR.

On Wednesday 26 March 2014 the Supreme Court will hand down judgment in the following: Kennedy v The Charity Commission; and Durkin v DSG Retail Ltd & Anor.

In the Privy Council today is the appeal from Trinidad and Tobago of Beacon Insurance Company Ltd v Maharaj Bookstore Ltd. On Tuesday is a matter from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. The appellant vet pleaded guilty to a charge of theft, using threatening words and behaviour, and common assault following an altercation with a neighbour, and the Judicial Committee will determine whether the respondent wrongly determined that the appellant was unfit to practise as a veterinary surgeon in the circumstances.  Finally, on Thursday 27 March is Sabapathee v The Director of Public Prosecutions, a Mauritian appeal relating to procedural issues in sentencing a drugs offence.
