Neil Moody QC, Robert Cumming and Andrew Bershadski successful in the Court of Appeal case of Kadie Kalma v African Minerals [2020] EWCA Civ 144.

In a wide-ranging judgment, Coulson LJ (with whom the President of the Queen’s Bench Division, Dame Victoria Sharp, and Irwin LJ agreed) dismissed the Claimant’s appeal against the judgment of Turner J, in which he had dismissed all the lead claims. The judgment of the Court of Appeal contains an important discussion of the principles of intention in common design, and the duty of care for acts of third parties in negligence.

First High Court PSPO Challenge declares part of Richmond’s dog walking PSPO invalid

2TG’s Martin Porter QC and Jessica van der Meer have been successful in the first PSPO challenge to reach the High Court. They challenged London Borough of Richmond’s decision to restrict dog walking across its lands. Today Mrs Justice May declared Richmond’s PSPO partially invalid. This case will have important consequences for future PSPO challenges. This is a hot button issue given Ealing Council’s decision this week to use a PSPO to ban protestors outside an abortion clinic.
