This Week in the Supreme Court – w/c 18th October 2021

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

On Monday 18th October, the Supreme Court will hear the appeal of Her Majesty’s Attorney General v Crosland, in Courtroom 1 at 11am.

This is an appeal of the decision in [2021] UKSC 15, and the Court will consider whether it was wrongly decided that Mr Crosland’s disclosure of the result of the Heathrow appeal, in breach of an embargo on the Court’s judgment, constituted a contempt of court. They will go on to consider whether the Court then wrongly imposed a fine of £5,000 on Mr Crosland, and wrongly ordered him to pay the Attorney General’s costs in the sum of £15,000.

On Tuesday 19th October, the Supreme Court will hear the appeal of Secretary of State for the Home Department v SC (Jamaica) at 10:30am in Courtroom 2. The decision appealed is [2017] EWCA Civ 2112.

The Court will consider how the Immigration Rules relating to deportation apply in the context of an individual’s criminal conduct whilst in the UK.

On Wednesday 20th October, the Supreme Court will hand down judgment in two cases:

FS Cairo (Nile Plaza) LLC v Brownlie (as Dependant and Executrix of Professor Sir Ian Brownlie CBE QC) – heard 13th and 14th January 2021.

The citation will be [2021] UKSC 45.
R (on the application of Majera (formerly SM (Rwanda)) (AP) v Secretary of State for the Home Department – heard 10th May 2021.
