R (Don't Drive Our Children Away) Ltd v The Schools Adjudicator and Surrey County Council

DATE: 01 Jan 2007

Counsel for the Local Authority: Richard McManus QC and Jonathan Moffett, 4-5 Grays Inn Square.

Katherine was instructed by the Schools Adjudicator to defend this challenge brought by a group of parents against the Adjudicator's decision in respect of the local education authority's schools admissions arrangements for that year. The Claimant also sought an emergency injunction restraining implementation of the arrangements. The claim was expedited.

The claim was successfully defended. Sullivan J decided to refuse permission and the application was not renewed by the Claimants to an oral hearing.
