Good news everybody. Grainger’s hopes of getting a Judicial Review and overturning the appeal verdict took a body blow this Halloween.
In the High Court Mrs Justice Lang was unequivocal in her dismissal of the three legal points Grainger raised. She sided with the Secretary of State. Not JR was granted. And the appeal verdict stands.
Grainger did not seek leave to take the case to the Court of Appeal. We understand that they have just 7 days to do so.
This is the second time that the High Court has thrown out their case. Perhaps now they will realise that their argument has no merit. Grainger’s corporate reputation is suffering. It is surely time for them to take down their fence, cut their losses, and go quietly into the night.
