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

On Wednesday 5th July the Court will hand-down judgment in R (on the application of Officer W80) v Director General of the Independent Office for Police Conduct and others [2023] UKSC 24. The Court will determine whether, in the context of police misconduct proceedings, it is open to a reasonable disciplinary panel to make a finding of misconduct if an officer’s honest, but mistaken, belief that his life was threatened was found to be unreasonable. The hand-down will begin at 9:45am in Courtroom 1.

From Wednesday 5th July – Thursday 6th July the Court will hear the case of Skatteforvaltningen (the Danish Customs and Tax Administration) v Solo Capital Partners LLP (in special administration) and others, on appeal from [2022] EWCA Civ 234. The Court will consider whether the Danish Customs and Tax Administration’s (“SKAT”) claims for the recovery of tax refunds made to the appellants are not admissible before the English courts by reason of Rule 3(1) of Dicey, Morris & Collins on the Conflict of Laws, which says that “English courts have no jurisdiction to entertain an action… for the enforcement, either directly or indirectly, of a penal, revenue or other public law of a foreign State”. The hearing will begin at 10:30am in Courtroom 1.
