High Court dates set to July 19th – 20th – all welcome to attend

Royal Courts of JusticeDates have now been set of the judicial review challenging the library closures.

The case will be heard on Tuesday 19th and Wednesday 20th July 2011 in the High Court on the Strand (see map below). It is possible that the case will overrun slightly (estimated it might take 2 ½ days) in which case it will conclude on the morning of the 21st.

If you want to attend the High Court Hearing of our claim for a judicial review of Brent’s decision to close our libraries here is some preliminary information.

Hearings normally start at 10am or 10.30am but it would be good to have people outside from 9am with T-shirts, banners and so on. Everyone is welcome to sit in on the hearing (subject to space) but we will have to sit quietly at the back. T-shirts in court are fine but no banners. It would be good if we can maintain a presence out the front throughout the day as well.

The High Court is a huge building on the Strand. Most of it is open to the public including the main hall and nearly all the hearings (not family cases). There is a big entrance at the front and also an entrance at the back facing onto Carey Street.

Useful info on the Ministry of Justice website.

All information received will be posted.

    Afraid you’ll have to copy and paste it.  Don’t give up though – there’s also a photo of a cat wearing a legal collar!
